I’d wondered why the powers that be at OULS thought that the window cleaning schedule was so important that I had to be warned about it every time I logged in.
Then on Tuesday I had a HUGE shock when this chap appeared – my office is a long way off the ground!
My office is at the top of LOTS of stairs – on the second floor (third floor to you colonials).
However, there’s plenty to see if you need to stop and pant – like these sad looking soldiers…
…and these little twiddly bits at the top.
As some of you may know, I’m currently working in the New Bodleian building two days a week. The Art Deco detail is wonderful…even down to the door knobs.
They’re really hard to turn when you have hand cream on!
I went to a rather fun exhibition at the Bodleian yesterday – showcasing various treasures from college libraries (my fave.? Waynflete’s boots – red velvet and very cosy looking).
On my way out, I noticed this chap – early 1900s I’d guess. I wonder who he was?
