Avenue Road sign :: September 4, 2005
Avenue Road sign    (click for previous picture)
Growing up in Toronto the street name "Avenue Road" never seemed strange, until I made friends with people who grew up elsewhere, then realized what an odd name it really is.

It even has its own Wikipedia entry with a quote from Robert Fulford who once wrote that its name "sounded like an identity crisis with pavement."
