Elsie Jeanette Oxenham published 87 books and numerous short stories for girls during the first half of last century. Most of them were set in England but a few were set in Wales, Scotland, Switzerland and France and characters visit or live in several other "overseas" locations. Here are the places not in England Scotland or Wales that we have found so far. We hope you enjoy "visiting" the places you have read about so often.

Here is a small selection of EJO locations. More will be added gradually.

Additions and corrections always welcome.
