Sign

Port of Spain is clearly the bi-lingual capital of the world. Can anyone tell me if they've ever seen bi-lingual street signs anywhere else. It's really special. What was the intention of these municipal markers? I wonder who got the job to translate. Edward Street to Calle Edward. Precious. For me there is a bigger and even more fundamental identity issue to be addressed. Is it Port of Spain or Port-of-Spain. Dash or no dash?
