Dwon on the corner: A city's nomenclature writ wrong

Tom Rogers, a planner with the City of Menlo Park and a member of the San Francisco Pedestrian Safety Advisory Committee (and a fellow student with me in Berkeley's planning program years ago) has made a mission of documenting San Francisco's mispelled street markers, of which there are plenty. 

His work was recently profiled in a story here.

Below are several efforts of city workers to spell "Middlefield" Rogers documented, each coming up a tad short:

Tom is an avid urban photographer, and more of his work is available here.
