This house (which is named Portview, according to another tablet opposite the one above) is located at the intersection of Sunrise Terrace and Occident Avenue, and its current address is 6 Sunrise Terrace, implying that it once stood like Istanbul or Damascus at the crossroads of Orient and Occident.

(This 1907 map [look at the bottom left] confirms that this block of Sunrise Terrace used to be called Orient Avenue.)
