When did they rename Swan Street (west of Punt Road) as Olympic Boulevard? I must have missed that memo.
Is it just to remind any visiting Sydneysiders that we had an Olympics before them?
For something that happened over fifty years ago, it seems a bit odd to keep actively renaming things to commemorate it. Maybe it’s part of a pattern. Exhibition Street was originally Stephen Street, and was renamed after the 1880 Exhibition… but evidently not officially until 1898.
Makes a change from renaming everything after Monash, I suppose.
We’ve also got lanes named after Dame Edna, and AC-DC. I wonder how long it’ll take for something to be named after someone or something post-Baby Boom?
