Banbury Road, Oxford: former home of Sir James Murray
Banbury Road, Oxford: former home of Sir James Murray
"Sunnyside", 78 Banbury Road, was the home of Sir James Murray (1837-1915), founder of the Oxford English Dictionary: he lived here from 1885 to his death.
In a building in the garden, the Scriptorium, Murray operated a system of pigeonholes for collating the enormous amount of information sent to him by correspondents; the out-going post from the Dictionary team was such that the Post Office erected a special pillar-box outside the house, which still stands.
