Oxford Street, London
Oxford Street is a major road in the City of Westminster in the West End of London. The street was formerly part of the London-Oxford road which began at Newgate, City of London, and was known as the Oxford Road.
Lowry refers to the street in Chapter 6 of his novel Under The Volcano; "Nor yet the poor little hot-dog man. That bitter December night he had met him trudging down Oxford Street with his new wagon—the first hotdog wagon in London,and he had been pushing it around for a whole month without selling a single hot dog." (Pg. 156).
