City Of Oxford School For Boys

Was in the Old City Of Oxford School For Boys in George Street today and noticed on the window ledge near the main hall this indentation.  The building dates back to 188o and was the school for boys until it closed in 1966 as it was becoming to small.  I must say that for a lot of those years the schools bell must of rested on this ledge and over the years it wore down the stone.  I was told by the warden that they do not know where the bell is that made this markings, but they have put a small sign to explain to visitors. The building is now used by the University of Oxfords History Department.
