The Corner of Live Long St and Prosper Ave [pic]

Ever since I lived in Salt Lake City, I haven’t been a big fan of street names.  The grid system they have out there is extremely useful and I hate living in a place that doesn’t use a grid system because it just makes things really easy to find without the need of things like GPS.  Well, this is the rare occasion that I love normal street names.

Star Trek legend George Takei posted this image on Facebook of the street intersection of Live Long St and Prosper Ave.  If that wasn’t enough to excite the Star Trek fans out there, the stop part of the crosswalk sign is the Vulcan solute.

There seems to be some debate in the comments for the picture about where this picture was taken.  Some are saying it was taken in Oregon while others are saying Vulcan, Alberta, Canada.  If you know for sure, let us know in the comments below so we can settle the debate!

Pass this along to any Star Trek fans you know!  Like us on Facebook too!

    This picture has been debunked on Facebook. Note the word “Kolinahr” in the lower corner.

    The picture was taken at the corner of Photo and Shop!

    Kolinahr Systems, Inc. based in Cincinnati OH makes specialty pallet handling and labeling equipment
    for the high-volume manufacturing industry.

    Not to mention that the “don’t walk” light isn’t exactly traditional.

    Google maps does not show a Prosper Ave in Vulcan, AB.

    This is one tiny town, check it out yourself.

    Can you say Photoshop?

    The corner of Live Long Street and Prosper Avenue, yeah – but why does nobody says something about Kolinahr?

    I’d like to think that if a town of any size were to have those streets that they would go as far as this and include a walk dont walk sign like this one.
