These two street signs face each other, about 5 metres apart, and are in scholarly dispute about apostrophe placement pic.twitter.com/jAnu8clKHM— M@ (@mattfromlondon) May 12, 2023
I'm a stickler for apostrophe usage, but it's hard to say if either of these signs is incorrect. It all depends on whether King Charles III has many scholars or just one scholar. Google Maps suggests a plurality of scholars, but I think that we need a headcount.
Matt Brown, an editor for the Londonist, snapped these photos. He appears to be a published expert on London geography and the Twitter thread shares other examples of British locales with disputed place names.
