street signs - North/West

An intersection for the directionally challenged.

West St runs in a northwest direction from Lake Simcoe and North St is, well, north of the lake and most of the city centre. 
My brother used to live on North St E, so I learned that West St is the dividing line.

    1. I guess so. Interestingly, North St, both east and west, are very small, almost insignificant streets.

    1. For me, the lake always has to be south. If there's no lake, that's even more confusing!

  8. O help. In think the only clear idea is that this is an intersection of whatever these streets suggest.

  9. We need to be clear as there are multiple intersections in our life too
