Ilive in a house with a number and a letter (say 20). The houses are 
number wierdly

|  20A  |  20 | 21 |

Google have it as

|  20 |  20A | 21 |

You cant read the number on streetview (though maybe internally they 
have a higher resolution than showing us). But you can see the A. Quite 
a few other errors.  I once had a driver say "parcel for 20" "no this is 
20A". "it must be 20 because my phone says so!" "But  I lived here 
before you had a smartphone"

Maybe a combination a semi reliable source and interpolation.
