In this contemporary world, everything has a bit different look, whether it is a name of a place or anything else. America shows that using a number, as a name is not problematic. A little Australian town uses a number for its name and hence it is named “1770”. Though the residents write the name as 1770, officially it is called “Seventeen Seventy”. The town is placed alongside the shore, where Captain James Cook and his crew first stepped on 24th May, 1770. The place was previously called Round Hill, but to memorialize the bicentenary visit of James and his team in 1970, the little town changed its name into 1770. They celebrate every May with a festival to commemorate Captain Cook’s visit.
