Mediaeval Oxford

This lithograph, published as a supplement to "The Builder" in 1891 depicts the city in the middle ages as imagined by the artist H. W. Brewer.

The image show Oxford from the west and includes the magnificent, and long since demolished, Osney Abbey. Other features that now cease to exist are the castle and the legendary Friar Bacon's Study.
