As minhas Ruas 9 - Whiteladies Road, Bristol

The origin of the name of Whiteladies Road appears to be a pub, known as the White Ladies Inn, shown on maps in 1746 and 1804. A map of 1826 shows a house called White Ladies, and the road at least as far as Whiteladies Gate (near the present site of Clifton Down station) had been given its name by that time.

Uma vez que Whiteladies Road é hoje uma sucessão de pubs, bares e restaurantes, parece-me muito apropriado.
