48/50 Second Avenue
In the Glebe neighbourhood there are five streets with numbers for names, they are referred to as "The Avenues". Many have shared driveways and even if wholly on the property they are seldom very wide as the homes were built in the streetcar era, when most people did not have cars.
As I walk my friend and do my errands I always enjoy these glimpses into the heart of the blocks where large trees have been allowed to grow and the rear of homes tells the storey of incremental additions.
