09/07/09 91 W, 5 I - + 10 - 5 Mystery Streets (Updated)


Identify these two streets that looked like they once connected. Hint #1: They're in Raleigh. Hint #2: At least one has undergone a name change, I think. It's inside the Beltline. Click to enlarge:
 

 

Now that the streets have been identified as Paula and Ann streets-- good job, A.C.-- here's the next question. Was the planned Noble Road ever created that even contemporary maps show as connecting the two? Below is a Sanborn Map from 1950, and a Google Map from today. Click to enlarge:
  





Connected, that is, by way of a third street that’s no longer there.

I’ll take a guess… the dead end of Paula St?... and the other street is Ann Street, dead end via the non-existent Noble Street (Google Maps!!)

Bingo! Fess up, how did you figure it out?

Well, a recent MWF was a clue, so I looked at Google Maps to see if my hunch was correct. I compared the “tree layout” from the aerial photography on Google to the trees and parking entrances from the mystery photos. All one has to do is follow your photo trail!!!
