Falsehoods programmers believe about addresses

This is an anchor-linked version of the excellent, amazing original opus magnum by Michael Tandy.

An address will start with, or at least include, a building number.

Counterexample: Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, London, WC2E 9DD, United Kingdom.

When there is a building number, it will be all-numeric.

Counterexample: 1A Egmont Road, Middlesbrough, TS4 2HT
