4th Annual London Meeting @ Oxford

Last May in Oxford took place the 4th Annual London PC Meeting, which gathered a few postcrossers from different countries. Heidi and Laerke sent me these 2 great Oxford cards, my 1st from this university city.

Oxford is a city in central southern England, known worldwide as a university town and home of the University of Oxford, the oldest university in the country and the English-speaking world. Although its exact date of foundation is unclear, there is evidence of teaching as far back as 1096.
This card shows Christ Church Cathedral, a romasnesque-gothic temple built between 1160-1200. It is also the chapel of Christ Church, a college of the University of Oxford.

This one shows Radcliffe Camera and St. Mary's Church.
The Radcliffe Camera, built 1737–1749 as Oxford's science library, now holds books from the English, History, and Theology collections.
The University Church of St Mary the Virgin is the largest of Oxford's parish churches and the centre from which the University of Oxford grew. It is situated on the north side of the High Street, and is surrounded by university and college buildings. - in: wikipedia
