Gown and Town Row, at Oxford, 1845. Creator: Unknown

Gown and Town Row, at Oxford, 1845. Locals and university students fighting. On Wednesday evening (Nov. 5) a scene of much tumult occurred in the usually quiet streets of Oxford, occasioned by the getting up of a "Gown and Town Row." In olden times great animosity existed between the "Gown" and "Town" and serious frays often occurred, weapons were used, and historians relate that lives were often sacrificed in these frays. There is a tradition that in Brewer's-lane...the gutters ran with blood...The rabble of the "Town," and the "Gown,"...continue their "rows," more particularly on the 5th of November, when the "Gown" parade the streets in ranks, and, being met by the "Town," fireworks are thrown about, fighting commences, and a regular melee ensues. However, nothing serious happens, but a few bruises, loss of caps, &c'. From "Illustrated London News", 1845, Vol VII

Model and student in drawing class, c1950. Creator: Shirley Markham

Model and student in drawing class, c1950. Shirley Markham (1931-1999) studied Graphic Design and Illustration at Central School of Art in London from 1950-1952. The writer, artist, poet, and illustrator Mervyn Peake (1911-1968) was one of her tutors, and her style of drawing was also influenced by other British illustrators such as Edward Ardizzone, Quentin Blake and Edward Bawden. Markham spent time in the Dolomite Mountains in Italy, and also visited Rome, sketching classical buildings. After graduating from Central, she worked as a graphic designer, producing book illustrations, cartoons for comics, menus and programmes. She gave up her promising career however when she got married in 1957. Middle-class women at that time were expected to devote their energies to bringing up children and running the home, and despite her obvious talent, she lacked the confidence to return to illustration. Her portfolio remained in the family attic for many years, but now her work is published here for the first time
