Photos - Surprises - Streets (continued)

Pyrmont

Alan follows Warner Brothers cartoons' example by ensuring protection in the event of freeway collapse. This is no carpark, but a very low Bulwara Road underpass joining two parts of Pyrmont.


Rydalmere

What a difference just one tree can make. This one sure brightened autumn for Euston Street, Rydalmere.


Shanes Park

A clash of spellings in Shanes, sorry, Shane Park. And it's not a spelling mistake. How confusing it must be for residents when the try to give their address?


Silverwater

How do they pronounce the name of their street? And how many other ways can you pronounce "ough"? While no-one's looking, have a sneak peak at the answer.


Spit Junction

Spit Junction's Horsnell Lane, where it rounds the bend into Field Lane, must go close to holding the record for Sydney's narrowest footpath. But we're sure someone can do better. Please let us know if you're the someone.


Stanmore

The northern half of the lane between Margaret Street and Corunna Road, Stanmore, is not recommended for cars and is barely recommended for humans. However it is trafficable for smaller animals. This is the narrowest lane that Alan has conquered.

Strathfield

Should we offer a prize for anyone who can find another street sign where the whole word is shown? Poor Nicholson only got the usual abbreviation.


Sydney

sydney-street-slip-ust.jpg

I would like to think that the name does not come from people falling over here frequently. More likely it comes from being near a boat slipway in the distant past.
