Street With No Name @ 12:45 am

canadanne:
I'm currently feelin: amused amused

Somewhat amusing article in today's Mirror:

EMMA Brogan has a problem when she gives out her address - for she lives in the street with no name.

Her house - the only one on a small road - is bafflingly described as Number 2, off 245 Higginshaw Lane, Royton, Oldham. It causes utter confusion to post workers, delivery drivers, and taxi men. Emma's mail, minicabs and takeaways usually go to neighbour Diane Bell.

Now, after three years of trying to get an address, Oldham Council have agreed to let Emma, 27, officially name the street. She said: "I am over the moon. The best suggestion I have had yet is U2 Road because of their song Where the Streets Have No Name."


Wouldn't that be cool? *g*

U2 Road would be seriously good for local tourism.

SUPER!! Yeah, the area i live in never had any street names either, so in order to know where to go they'd say next to so-and-so's place or go into elaborate descriptions of the house and I used to joke with that song because it was the whole town! But about 7 years ago they finally did the 911 call thing here(which doesn't work because it takes an hour or more for the ambulence to come, you're better off packing 'em into the car, you might make it in 45 min.), so they named the streets and numbered the houses. Joke no longer applies!

Ppffft. I've already got the sign for her. I bought an American style street sign off ebay a few years back that says "U2 St." hehe
