"ES" is similar to an American Morse ampersand, this the use.

Hi all,

I was just watching something on TV about the assassination of Lincoln and noted that at one point in the show, the address (which I can't remember
exactly) was (say) "first and main," but it was listed at "1st es Main."

Boy did that get me thinking.

I tried Google, but nothing.

Any help?
