You probably can't get a more mainstream (or boring) a name than Main Street. At least in the US and Canada, it is very common. It is even used as a metonym to described the major retail street, or what the Brits call the 'high street'.
but I have never seen it written as it is in the town of Delhi (pronounced DEL-high, by the way) not far from Woodstock, where we saw last week's street sign.
I suppose it can be a little confusing?ReplyDelete
It's one way to make the town unique from the rest of the county.Delete
Good catch on this sign.ReplyDelete
Thanks. It would have been pretty boring without the 'of Delhi' wouldn't it?!Delete
I never know what 'high street' meant. Main Street certainly os a common name around here. Tom The Backroads TravellerReplyDelete
It is very explicit isn't it?ReplyDelete
That's a good one, Violet!ReplyDelete
We've got a Delhi Road in Sydney that is pronounced Del-EYE.ReplyDelete
My SIGNS, SIGNS
That is unusual! Surprisingly we don't have a "Main Street" where I live.ReplyDelete
actually, there is no Main St where I live either!Delete
Just in case you got confused about which town you were in?ReplyDelete
I would've thought this wasn't in the US/Canada!ReplyDelete
Here the streets are just numbered but the big, prominent ones are named after important people in Cambodia.
The name surprises me. Something I would not expect to see in small town Ontario.ReplyDelete
I was an adult before I realized that our main street has an actual name. lolReplyDelete
