Elvis Anonymous

A little while ago I heard a CBC radio program about weird and unusual street names. Apparently there is an Elvis Lives Lane in Ottawa.

So I made a point of looking for it when out at MEC. Low and behold, the street sign is stolen. Given the name, that is probably a common occurence, and explains why was not promptly replaced on this sign post. That might be a CCTV camera on the wall to right, I wonder if its focus included the sign post.

The sign on the building beyond lines up nicely with the sign post and will have to do for now.

  1. Oh, it’s not gone. It’s out there somewhere, living under an assumed name.

    I was the guest on that Ontario Today phone-in about street names. Shame to see that sign gone. I’ll have to remember to ask Moe how often they have to replace that thing.

  2. Eric – You need to get out of Dalhousie a little more often! We Westborians know exactly where Elvis Livs Lane is (was?!). If you go inside the Newport (restaurant) you can also pick up a special red phone and talk to the King himself…

  3. The sign (not a reasonable hand-drawn facsimile) can be found mounted to the wall in the Newport’s vestibule as you enter. Mind you, it’s a green-and-white pre-amalgamated Ottawa sign. That lonely post is due for a shiny new blue and white version.
