To E or not to E?

What the original maps say

Did you ever wonder why ...
Some people spell Boulevarde with a final E
while
there are others who spell Boulevard with no extra E?

Can both be right?

Council, it appears, is confused because some of our local signs have the E at the end but most official Council records show no extra E. Indeed most Boulevards in the world go without an E to finish. Although Hawks Nest of course has "The Boulevarde"! That final E hasn't been washed away - yet.

The image here has been copied from one of the earliest maps for the Cove Village - dated around 1920. There was definitely no extra E back then.

So, should our Boulevards be extra E-less? What do you think?
