Pollok or Pollock?

[Picture of shop sign]POLLOCKSHAWS ROAD OR POLLOKSHAWS ROAD?

If you are going to the trouble of having a sign made, it would make sense to check the spelling.  It seems strange to me that a shop would not know it’s own address. It’s “Mega amusing” that they got it wrong!

Yes, things are getting worse. Click on the picture to enlarge.

For the record, the road is “Pollokshaws Road” — no “C” — after Pollok house, Pollok Park, Pollok Estate, Pollokshields and so forth.

Maybe the people behind the removal of Shawlands are also behind the new spelling of adjacent areas.
