"The good news—and the bad news—for America is that the nation’s own super-elite is rapidly adjusting to this more global perspective. ...

“His point was that if the transformation of the world economy lifts four people in China and India out of poverty and into the middle class, and meanwhile means one American drops out of the middle class, that’s not such a bad trade,” the CEO recalled."

Oxford, NC Downtown filmTime Machine



People of Oxford

"Filmed 1939 by Lee Waters of Lexington, NC. Introduction from a local news clip. Ending with a Hoover Day Parade and clips from Dr. Thomas."

The film maker was primarily interested in filming Oxford locals and only fleeting glimpses of of the town's architecture and landmarks are available. Still, the film shows clearly that Oxford was - during it's roll as a central market for tobacco - a very active city and considerably larger with regard to downtown structures.
