Long gone street names of Guelph

The Guelph Public Library’s Historically Guelph/Guelph Then and Now Blogs have an excellent article about the various street names of old Guelph.

“Fleet, Manchester, Devonshire…what do these names have in common?  They’re the former names of Yorkshire, Glasgow and Dublin Streets, south of Waterloo Avenue.  But Waterloo wasn’t Waterloo, it was called Market Street back in the days when an electric street railway ran down its centre.  Waterloo was in use elsewhere as the former name of what is now Fountain Street.”
