Dark phone-snap of a Belgian Mapping Guy phoning home (?) whilst parked [hopefully for shopping] at the Linthouse Lidl.
Regrettably, was pushed for time so could not interrogate re: Inverquohomony Road and such nonesense that do appear in these TomTom foolishnesses, etc.

Most of Carnarvon Street is shown as 'The Henge' on Google Maps.

Google Earth used to have Arcadia Street (turning left heading west on London Rd) down as Elvis Street. Unfortunately they don't anymore.

Most online maps show the Southern General end of Langlands Road as Emma Street. Lived in that part of Langlands Road from age of 9 to 21 and never, ever heard of Emma Street, in fact there is only an electricity sub-station on that part of the road and it has a street name plaque stating Langlands Road on it (checked the last time i was at my mothers). Although may explain why one of my daughters is called Emma!!!!!!!!
