In the 1955 Philip Larkin poem "The Importance of Elsewhere", it reads:
Their draughty streets, end-on to hills, the faint
Archaic smell of dockland, like a stable,
The herring-hawker's cry, dwindling, went
To prove me separate, not unworkable.
Living in England has no such excuse:
Here's a link to the whole twelve-line poem (due to misprinting on the website, the period that should be at the end of the fourth line is missing, but apart from that it is correct): https://allpoetry.com/The-Importance-Of-Elsewhere
So my question is: where on Stack Exchange should I ask whether it's true, as a matter of plain fact, that streets in Ireland in 1955 were end-on to hills, more often than those in England?
