Note it down. June 19, 2017. The day the Melbourne Age died of shame. Or should have, if it had not become entirely shameless.

June 19, 2017. The day a newspaper that had served the city for over 160 years got the spelling of one of its legendary thoroughfares wrong:

“Little Collin’s street.”

Who’s Little Collin?

(And don’t get me started on the lack of capitalisation on “street”.)

PS: Almost 10 hours after the piece first went live the errors remain uncorrected. So much for quality.
