There's Another Street Named for Janet Frame

I just recently learned that the 'Janet Frame Way' in the Hutt Valley, that is off Katherine Mansfield Drive, is not the only street in New Zealand named after Janet Frame. There is one in the Waikato too.

I've only had a quick look at Google Maps, but it seems that most of the streets in Leamington, Cambridge (a town in the Waikato district of New Zealand) are named after writers, both foreign and local. Frame Street, named after Janet Frame, lies between Tennyson and Carlyle, parallel to Browning.

Other Kiwi authors that are name checked, include: Sargeson Place, Knox Place, Glover Street, Mansfield Street, Ihimaera Terrace, Fairburn Place, Mahy Way, Hilliard Place, Grace Avenue and Dallas Place.
