Old High Street, Headington: number changes


This street was renumbered at some point between 1938 and 1941, when it was called High Street, Old Headington
It was renamed Old High Street in 1942, so in Kelly's Directory up to 1941
it is listed alphabetically under H for High Street, Old Headington

In the directory for 1941 only it has the old numbering, but the new name. The table below gives the numbers
in the two directories that straddle the change of numbers from the old to the present ones.
