Postcards of the Past


Oxford University


Oxford - the University. The University has 39 colleges and 7 "Permanent Private Halls". The colleges for which we have postcards are listed below with links to our pages of these postcards. In addition, each college has its own website and links are provided to these from the corresponding web page. In keeping with our policy only to include postcards which are at least 50 years old, the colleges do not include those founded after 1960. Information given here about the colleges has been gleaned from a variety of books and websites.

In conjunction with Zazzle, we have produced an extensive range of gifts, using images from these old postcards. The items available include many reproduction postcards, coffee mugs, Christmas cards, birthday cards, key chains, fridge magnets, watches etc. Most items may be personalised.
