I recently noticed that Minnie Bruce Street in Franklin has had its name revoked! Going through this street in Franklin on the bus yesterday I noticed yellow sign blades had been erected saying “Formerly Minnie Bruce Street” on all the sign posts, with signs for the new street name – Morris West Street – fixed above.
Has anyone noticed any other Canberra streets having their names changed – and for what reasons?
Does anyone know why this change has occurred? What was wrong with Minnie Bruce that she had to be killed off like that? Interestingly, I thought the original street name theme for Franklin was female writers, but now it seems to be “authors – especially female authors”. Am I just imagining this change or not?
