People are always saying you should take time to stop and smell the roses. We think you should also take time to stop and read the street signs.
Peters Township is full of streets with interesting names. Some are named after aspects of the area’s varying topography, while others are named after types of trees or flowers. There are streets bearing women’s names and roads that pay homage to Anglican figures, places and history. And, of course, there are some streets that fall into a category of their own.
Sometimes, the thing that makes a street name stand out the most is the other things it draws to mind. A sign might remind you of a song you haven’t heard in a while, or of a movie or book. It can make you think of a joke you heard or something off-color. It can do a lot of things.
We found a dozen streets in the area with interesting names that can also call other images to mind. So, take a gander and let your synapses fire.
