Odd Shot -- harking back

I took this a year ago today.

 Why is this odd?

I don't know if the street is new--perhaps newness is relative.

We found this street sign in Edinburgh, Scotland just off the Royal Mile.

The history of the Royal Mile goes back to the Middle Ages.

So I think this new street is probably pretty old.

I like the way the stones are set == they all resemble "blocks" with the motar being the streets.

"New" is definitely a relative term. The New River flowing north from North Carolina through Virginia and West Virginia to the Ohio River is said to be the oldest in North America
