Restriction Street Before 1916

Was there ever a street named Restriction in Plainview Texas? Yes, until 1916 when the city council renamed it 11th street according to an article in the Plainview Daily Herald.  The inscription on this photo shows 1842 as the date. This doesn't seem possible as Plainview wasn't founded until 1888. Before that there just wasn't much around here except flat open Prairie.
