Thursday Doors on Tenth Street


….thanks to Norm for hosting Thursday Doors – Oct. 5, 2017

The streets that run north/south in my neighbourhood are all named with numbers, i.e., First Street, Second Street, etc.. It can be a bit challenging when you live at the bottom of the street close to the lake and have a low house number. When your address is 7 Sixth Street it is not uncommon for people to end up at 6 Seventh Street by mistake. The other challenge is that the streets on the Toronto Islands have the same names. This is where postal codes are really important if you want your letter to get to the right place.

  1. I came from a small town where all the roads were numbered. It was very easy to find your way around. The *streets* all run east-west and the *avenues* ran north-south. I longed to live somewhere with real street names like in books and the movies. Now that I do, I appreciate the simplicity of the numbers.
