Street Signs - What's in a Name?

The mention of an ancestoral gggrandfather by a viewer led me and my curosity to this beautiful street corner of Scoullar and Neptunus in Oromocto last weekend. The street sign is a nice way I think, to honour the memory of an early shipbuilder in this area. In 1847 William Scoullar built a ship of 800 tons at Oromocto, Sunbury County. The ship's name? The Neptuna.

Also, a William Scoullar was a member of the Provincial Legislature, representing Sunbury County for a number of years.
