Archive for the ‘Reservoir Street’ tag
Some street names are easy to understand.
For instance, Reservoir Street – where the reservoir was found. Or Elizabeth Bay Road – the road leading down to said bay.
And then you come across one that makes you smile, and speculate as to how it was named.
Back when they were naming streets, was there a really good bloke who lived in the Surry Hills area, somewhere between Campbell and Reservoir Streets? Council just couldn’t remember his name, but everyone agreed he was a “good chap”?
I’d like to think so.
