The little town I live in has this really bizarre system of numbering it’s streets. Each house has a letter after it – N, S, E or W.
I can just picture how it happened…
Some old mate town planner, back in the day, sitting in the pub and puts his beer glass down on his town plans. That lightbulb moment where he goes “I’ll give the streets a letter for the compass point they point to!”
Might have seemed like a good idea at the time, but it’s an absolute bitch trying to explain it to people who don’t live here (we’re apparently the only town in Australia that numbers its houses and streets with this system).
We live in a W house. Daughter’s bestie lives in the same number house as us, but her house has an E.
