This view of Magdalen Bridge hung over William Morris’ desk in his factory office. Whether it served to remind him of his fondness for the city where he became established or perhaps the place where he was once kidnapped by students from the University as a Rag Week stunt, it illustrated the contrast between the traditional dreaming spires and the factory complex which Morris had created, both of which characterised Oxford.
