Broad Street, Oxford.

The "Cross" also features in Hardy's "Jude the Obscure".

The Martyrs' Cross,where Cranmer,Ridley and Latimer were burned at the stake,A.D. 1555

Well Done.

I find the vast majority of your vintage postcards to be quite interesting in one way or another, even when I haven't a clue where they are of, but this one is completely bereft of much interest at all.

Of course I'm not criticising you, but the Edwardian photographer, he's used a very wide angle, even for the era, used it to highlight a totally uninteresting Elastoplast feature in the middle of the road, seems to have taken it on a dead Sunday morning when no interesting street life is happening, and to top it all, there isn't even an interesting looking streetwise dog scavenging about somewhere...

The spot where three people were burned alive for their beliefs totally uninteresting?

How sad.
