Geography and the street where you live...

There is an interesting article in the Times today - link will not work unless you are using it fairly soon...
It suggests that you can tell whether a street is likely to be the residence of high or low class housing (and occupiers)
There is a list provided on the page, which suggests the most and least expensive street names. Interesting research - what are your views on this ?
Who lives in a house like this ? Geographers, it's over to you....
