1947年,來自上海的建築師鄭定邦授命為台北市的街道重新命名。他決定將一幅中國地圖覆蓋於台北市之上,中軸線對準今日的中山南、北路,然後在將地圖上的城市名,根據地理方位,逐一填進台北街道。 1949年,中華民國政府播遷來台,最終定臨時首都於台北。這些路名,意外地為歷史留下命運般的註腳。

In 1947, the Shanghainese architect, Zheng Ding-Bang, followed the order of renaming for streets of Taipei City. He took a map of China, stuck it onto the Taipei City map, and fill out the blanks on unnamed Taipei streets with Chinese province and city names according to the map of China.

In 1949, Chiang Kai-Shek and the KMT government retreated to Taipei, Taiwan, as the temporary capital, the "recovery of our rivers and mountains" became the most noble creed thereafter, and the street names of Taipei accidentally spreads like the "river and mountains" of mainland China, bearing this new historical fate.
