1st June 2023 100th Anniversary of the sale of the first MG, Bonn Square, Oxford

Pictures taken of the small display and publicity event mounted in Bonn Square, Oxford, close to the original Morris Garage in Queens St where the sale of the fist MG was made on 1st June 1923 to Thomas Jewson, who bought it for his son Donald who was studying at Pembroke College.
There was a display of 6 MGs ranging from an M Type to an SV. The display attracted much interest and many questions from both locals and tourists.
There’s a short video below together with a gallery of photos. You can click/tap the photos for a larger view and the last one is the front of the 4 page leaflet which was handed out.
