Oxford Is Not Just A University
Since this time and up until today Oxford has played a major role in the manufacture of British Motor Cars, with William Morris producing just 400 cars a year before the first world war, and then a few short years later after the war his plant in Cowley was turning out nearly 50000 cars a year.
Today this tradition continues, with Oxford being the home of the BMW Mini. If you see a Mini anywhere in the world you know it was made in Cowley Oxford.
