This road was first thought to be named after the British currency, Pound Sterling. A convenient check online revealed that many private addresses, including Queenstown Swimming Pool, bears the name "Sterling Road." Hence we come to this conclusion that the possibility of Stirling Road being named after the official currency of the United Kingdom is very high. However, a browse over the several references and the national archives reveal otherwise. What's wrong, or what's special about this cheeky and winding road called Stirling Road?
