Streets being 'renamed'.
Ie, Redfurn Street (formerly known as Thewell Crescent).
WHY OH WHY???
I like and not lose weight at the same time. It's madness I tell you!
But I condone it.
bummed and bumped off loads of people and they've changed the name tominimise the morbid tourism.
Small, no major thoroughfare... No renaming after Town Mayer type thing.
I notice far too many wierd things.. it was on my search of more urban art........... and places to pull out my own spray can thang. lol.
alton thelwell was a bit shit. Neil Redfearne was slightly better.
but I did see this today.. I have forgotten the former and new names.
if the street has recently been renamed perhaps the original name was something to do with slave-trading or something that we aren't allowed to honour any more.
near Leeds was named Cromwell Gardens. It was renamed, however, because at the time they were making grizzly discoveries in Fred West's cellar on Cromwell street. Ho ho!
