This is the page for Cowley 151 Road.
This is the Honest Stationery shop.
For the past couple of years it has also hosted the local post office, which moved here from the Costcutter newsagents at number 120. The post office permanently closed in 2017.
An increase in rough sleeping across Oxford saw the covered and tiled entrance to the shop used increasingly frequently by rough sleepers. In 2017, bedding and bags can frequently be seen outside the shop's entrance.
The former owner of Honest Stationery Stephen Cooper, a familiar Cowley Road face, tragically committed suicide at his home in Crescent Road.
