    Like much street numbering from Victorian England, Cleveland Gardens' does not run in a straight line, as this snippet from Google Map Street View illustrates. Add to this confusion the fact that a large section along the street has been rebuilt into a multi-unit block -- because of the Blitz, natural deterioration or just anti-preservation -- and the facts that this street collides with the numbering of Cleveland Square (no intersection to separate) and that houses sometimes change numbers over time.
