> The period after St. is the correct way in English to abbreviate
> Saint, where as the abbreviation of street doesn't have a period.

Exactly the opposite according to my (Collins) dictionary:

st abbrev. for short ton.
St abbrev. for Saint.
st. abbrev. for stanza, statute, (cricket) stumped by
St. abbrev. for statute, Strait, Street
Sta abbrev. for Saint (female).
