I just added Zoffany Street to the map in more detail (all buildings and addresses):
It’s a very short little street. A modern block of apartments on one side, and old cutesy coloured houses on the other. Relatively unremarkable except…
UK geonerds may recognise the name, because Zoffany Street was the last street in the “A to Z”. You can read ‘From Aaron Hill to Zoffany St’ bbc article, and many other tellings of this story, but very briefly… The A-to-Z road map of London was first created as a one-woman effort by Phyllis Pearsall. Annoyed about lack of detail/usability in other maps, she decided to do a crazy thing. She went and walked all the streets of London and created her own new map from scratch. Sound familiar? Phyllis Pearsall died 8 years before OpenStreetMap was born, but she surely would’ve enjoyed those first London mapping parties.
In that original A-to-Z atlas, Zoffany Street was the very last street appearing in the index. London got bigger, with more Z’s in there since, but originally Zoffany Street was the final “Z” in the “A-to-Z”! So good job I’ve mapped it properly now.
