When Street Names Run Out in Canada: This Street, That Street, The Other Street

Web surfers found funny relief in the road names uncovered in a small Canadian hamlet that seems to have ran out of ideas for names.

“Hi man, what street are you on?” “Ah, that street,” This street, please. “No, that street,” I said.

In Porters Lake, Nova Scotia, Canada, there definitely seems to be a lot of confusion when people attempt to find their way to certain addresses for the first time. Street names like “This Street,” “That Street,” and “The Other Street” appear to indicate that the small town has ran out of creative ideas.

But when it comes to peculiar yet amusing street names, Porters Lake is hardly the only community. One such is the “Road to Nowhere,” which leads through the tiny Nunavut province town of Iqaluit.

A colourful collection of town names, such as Head-Smashed-In Buffalo Jump, Stoner, Blow Me Down, Cow Head, Asbestos, Eyebrow, Dead Man’s Flats, and Saint-Louis-du-Ha! Ha!, is another promotion from Canada.
