The initial aim to was relieve Greek famine in 1942 caused by Nazi German occupation and Allied naval blockades. The first paid employee Joe Mitty was at this store from 1949, selling anything donated and making it into a national chain. By the 1960s the focus was long term development work. Marketing handicrafts via Fair Trade is a global enterprise.Oxfam still responds to world crisis as it happens.

 This modern Oxfam is on the original site. Hazle copied the left side with its modelled stone work between the two upper windows, missing on the right. In the heart of Oxford, Broad Street also known as The Broad, is much seen in TV’s Inspector Morse, Lewis and Endeavour.
