The name comes from a newspaper published nearby since 1822, but the road until much more recently was called Apollo Street--which has nothing to do with the Greek god and comes instead from the European corruption of a local word for a kind of "fish."
The unnamed building here suggests the value of porches in the days before air-conditioning, not to mention the ability of human beings to ignore decrepitude and carry on.
