In Theory, Or On Paper, This Seems To Be A Clear And Intelligible Arrangement; But It Does Not Work Well. These Center Depots Are Large Spaces, And Consequently One Portion Of A Street Is Removed A Considerable Distance From The Other.

It is as though the same name should be given to two streets, one of which entered St. James's Park at Buckingham Gate, while the other started from the Park at Marlborough, House.

To inhabitants the matter probably is not of much moment, as it is well known that this portion of such an avenue and that portion of such another avenue are merely myths - unknown lands away in the wilds. But a stranger finds himself in the position of being sent across the country knee deep into the mud, wading through snipe grounds, looking for civilization where none exists.

All these avenues have a slanting direction. They are so arranged that none of them run north and south, or east and west; but the streets, so called, all run in accordance with the points of the compass. Those from east to west are A Street, B Street, C Street, and so on - counting them away from the Capitol on each side, so that there are two A streets and two B streets. On the map these streets run up to V Street, both right and left - V Street North and V Street South. Those really known to mankind are E, F, G, H, I, and K Streets North.
