This, That & The Other

Posted by scruss on 10 April 2018 in English (English)

It seems that the residents of Porters Lake, Nova Scotia don't entirely take the august topic of road naming very seriously. This shoreline community has streets called This Street, That Street and The Other Street

Could be worse. Near me are roads with names like North North Road.

1st of April?

Nope, Warin61 - these are real roads, as logged in the national roads database.

Pitty it is not named 'Street Town'

In Tasmania there is Doo Town https://www.openstreetmap.org/#map=17/-43.03839/147.94237 Unfortunately the houses and their names are not mapped .. house names such as

Doo Us She'll Doo Doo Little

Hmm I might just go and map the houses...done, someone els will have to map the names.

If one is standing on This Street it is probably very efficient to give directions to someone going to That Street. The other way round we probably be rather confusing (and hilarious)!
