Thread Name: Origins: Spanish Ladies
Subject: RE: Spanish Ladies
Thanks for the correction! I guess this kind of corruption of place names often happens when a song is heard rather than read on broadsheet etc. Those names would mean nothing to someone who doesn't know them, so he might mishear or remember them wrongly...Are the others (I mean the probably lesser known ones, like Start and Beachie) correct, though?
Interesting story, that one about the "Spanish Ladies" - no matter if it is true or not...
