Memories of Oxford

I went to a talk by Lord Gowrie about his time at Oxford (1959-62). He enjoyed lengthy discussions about art with one of his tutors. One day, his tutor asked him, "Have you seen that new shop on The Broad?" Gowrie confessed his ignorance. "It's the most extraordinary place!" his tutor proclaimed. "Everything in it has been given away by people and the sale proceeds go to charity. I found two statuettes by Inigo Jones there!"
