Naming A Laneway

For the last few years the city has been putting names on the many laneways that run through the older parts of the city. This helps emergency services to find the lanes and by referencing local history it helps to build a community spirit. This laneway was named after Gustav Ciamaga who was a long-time resident of his neighbourhood and a distinguished member of the musical community (read about him HERE). He was also a dear friend of mine and it is lovely to see him honoured like this.

That's nice that a local person was honoured with a lane named after him. Great that he was your friend too Pat.

I've seen this same thing done here occasionally. It's a great idea. I read Ciamaga's bio on the link. He sounds like he was a very talented and creative person.

Naming the laneways is all new to me. Even Google maps have not picked up on them.

Great looking sign too.

He certainly is deserving of tribute. How nice to be able to call such an accomplished man a friend.

It's great to see local luminaries honoured in this way. Perhaps we should do a little more of this while people are still alive, as we now do on postage stamps.

Nice honor! Some years ago my state made a big effort to get road names posted in clear letters. The result included some odd names but overall the signs are a big improvement over the mish mash that we had before.
