Of course, I could be wrong.
The sign reads: "Martin St Turrella. A forgotten street.
It existed before the East Hills rail line. Rockdale Municipal Council and local residents remember and preserve it."
Perhaps uniquely, three streets run parallel with only narrow grass strips separating them:
Leicester Street (foreground), Canley Vale Road (middle) and Beckhaus Street (rear).
The first of the three-pronged attack, Leicester Street, is in Wakeley; Beckhaus Street is in St Johns Park;
Canley Vale Road can’t make up its mind.
In an unnamed lane off O’Dowd Street,
Waverley, is a relic of decades ago. In the era before computer
games, young children played hopscotch on squares chalked
on the pavement. This one has survived because it was painted.
So you've moved to Westmead. How's your street?
Adelaide Parade, Woollahra, from start to finish,
doesn’t seem to have a high priority need for traffic
lights or roundabouts.
The paling fence across the entrance to The
Grove, Woollahra, a no-cars street with nine cottages, ensures
that The Grove (see below) remains the best of secrets.
The Grove, Woollahra
Bowden Lane, Woollahra. Is tiny enough without this even narrower one branching from it.
It's wide enough to drive a rubbish bin down it, but not much else.
Nearly every house in Prince Edward Park Road, Woronora,
carries a clear message to the council.
What was concerning residents of peaceful Prince Edward Park Road, Woronora?
(See next photo)
A gate. If plans to open it succeeded, their street would become a major traffic artery to the neighbouring,
but presently inaccessible, suburb.

Answers to Abbotsford questions:
Why does the one Abbotsford street have its name in both capitals and lower case?
Maybe to stake a claim for first Sydney suburb to use lower case letters in street name signs, an honour that I’m confident it owns.
Why does the one Abbotsford street have two names? Twice?
It doesn’t. Someone, probably not me, turned the Spring Street and Teviot Avenue signs 90 degrees.
Why does the one Abbotsford street have two colours?
Why does Abbotsford have three colours?
I’m awaiting answer from council
Answer to the question about the most common street name in Sydney suburbs:
Park is the clear leader for common Sydney street names, but Victoria and Railway also gain a medal.
