This looks like what I described as:
- They are not in front of the name on the street signs. If anywhere, they
are in a smaller font, after the address starting
So, the remaining questions are:
- When you look at official records, like assessor's and tract maps, is it
called "South Westmoreland Dr"?
- If someone is giving you directions, do they say "Go west on West 26th
Street, then south on South Westmoreland Drive."?
- It does appear that 2500 N Westmoreland Dr and 2500 S Westmoreland Dr are
separate addresses in Orlando, according to USPS
(http://zip4.usps.com/zip4/welcome.jsp). However, no prefixes are used for
addresses on 26th St, despite the presence on the sign.
My guess is that this is a place where the prefixes should be moved out of
the name tag, but this should be left up to a local.
