Jews Walk

Yes, as a matter of fact, we do. Uncannily, that is precisely what I was doing when I came across this street near Forest Hill. (And there was also that whole 40-years in the desert thing, now that I think of it.)

They just don’t name streets like they used to.

    Maybe it used to be the old Road that Jews in the area lived on ages ago, or maybe it was a road that Jews were made to use. Other than that I have no idea really.

    I suspect you’re right. It’s just funny how blunt and literal they used to be (whenever it was that they named these streets). Can you imagine this sort of thing happening today? Like what if they officially changed the name of Lower Clapton Road to ‘Murder Mile’? Or if they named any street after the ethnic group who lived there? Now that would be fun.
