Naming Names

This little brick school in Newtown was built around 1850, and called Land's End.

It stands on Obtuse Road, which is not far from Toddy Hill Road and Button Shop Road and Sugar Street and The Old Road and Johnny Cake Lane.

There are wonderful street names all over this state, from Coventry's Bread and Milk Street to Killingworth's Roast Meat Hill to Glastonbury's Old Maids Lane. But for sheer number of smile-inducing street signs concentrated in one area, I think Newtown may be the winner.
