It's a funny thing about maps ...
Tom Street in the Sydney suburb of Ermington can be found on map 212 of the 2005 UBD Sydney Street Directory. But you’ll have a problem trying to drive there; because it’s not actually there. A quick search of Google Maps satellite imaging confirms that it never was there. It’s a fake street.
Just one of the many fake streets, fake cemeteries, fake Scout Halls and a collection of other made-up Sydney landmarks that were deliberately printed in old paper street directories.
