A to Z Challenge: W is for Berwick Street (#AtoZChallenge)

Welcome to my April 2017 Great and Powerful 2017 Blogging from A to Z Challenge!

Today, W is for Berwick Street!  Hey, there’s a W there!

Here is a Google map showing where Berwick Street is located in James Bay.

What I could find out about Berwick Street:

Berwick is yet another one-block street in our neighbourhood.  It starts at Boyd Street and dead-ends before reaching San Jose (see J).  And this time, there is no escape, even by foot, except to turn around and head back out to Boyd Street.  I always wondering what people living on streets like Berwick think when you drive or walk down their streets knowing full well that they dead-end.

Yeah, that’s all I got folks.  I have no idea where the name came from, and I have no interesting facts about Berwick Street.  There are a bunch of retirement homes around Victoria and the Island called Berwick, but they probably have nothing to do with the street…

Here are some pictures I took of Berwick Street.

That’s all there is, folks…

And just to pad things a bit, here is a telephone pole at the entrance to Berwick:

What else do you want to know about Berwick Street?  Ask away, and I will see what I can find out for you!

  1. Cunning use of W! Maybe someone of Scottish origin named it after Berwick here? Like the artistic pole.

  2. Maybe the people living there assume people are lost when the come down the street?

  3. “No exit” signs always look creepy, even in perfectly inconspicuous places.

  4. That is a cool telephone pole. I’ve never seen any like that around here.

    About people driving down the dead-end streets, knowing they are dead-end streets, we do it on a regular basis. There are some pretty houses around some areas that are on dead-end streets and, I guess, the folks just get used to it after a while. Besides, its the job of us gawkers to keep them awake and on their toes. 🙂

    Have a blessed night!

  5. I mean, that’s a pretty cool telephone pole 😋

  6. The W smack-dab in the middle works for me! Bonus points for creativity!

    I love the telephone pole. 😀
