Hello

Is it possible, and when I say possible I mean that it is formally correct, to put commas in addreses in formal letters, o some kind of punctuation?

I'd say no, but a student asked me and since then I have the doubt.

Somethign like this:

28, London Street

or

17 February 2008.

or (receiver's address)

Cervantes School,
10, Madrid Road,
Spain.


Thanks

    It's common practice to have it in this format.

    123 Any Street,
    Any town,
    Anyshire,
    ANY1 9BB

    Note, no comma after the number, a comma after every line but no full stop at the end.

    However, over the past few years the common usage of the commas has disappeared and most people write their address without any punctuation.
