What’s in a name?

Just near where I live, there is a park which is used as a (barely adequate but better than nothing) sportsfield by the local high school. The park was enlarged some time in the late 80s by the by the annexation of a closed-off portion of the Macbethianly-named Fairfowl Street.  In what must have seemed like a terrific wheeze up in the English department staff room, the whole thing was then named the Graham Green in honour of Bob Graham, headmaster of the school for a bit over 10 years.

I wondered if something similar was afoot in Blacktown, where I went this evening to see a play Pyramids at the Blacktown Performing Arts Centre. On my way from the station I passed the council’s Max Webber Library.
