Salt Lake City officially changed the street names of its west and north streets names in 1972. Prior to this, Salt Lake City’s lots were numbered from the Salt Lake meridian, which consisted of the southeast corner of Temple Square. However the streets Main, which was originally named East Temple,  North Temple and West Temple, did not align with individual address or numbers. After 1971, West Temple became 100 West and the city rebranded 100 West as 200 West. By making this change the individual address and the street names matched.
