City of Peterborough Large directional sign denoting the road ahead as Lansdowne Street. Notice the paste-over covering up the former reference to Lansdowne Street as Highway 7B.  Peterborough is a confusing city to travel through without any numbered routes.  Without Highway 7B it is virtually impossible for motorists to traverse Peterborough from east to west without consulting a map.  Click here to see Josh Anderchek's computer generated version of this sign with a Highway 7B crown.
