Other / Postal address abbreviation
Spanish term or phrase: % ("e/" ?)
This symbol, like a percentage sign but with dots in place of the o's, appears in a handwritten Cuban postal address, with the following format:

Este simbolo, como un signo de porcentaje pero con puntitos en lugar de los 'o's, aparece en una direccion postal de Cuba, escrita a mano, con el formato siguiente:

[nombre y appellido]
[calle] 199
% [nombre] y [nombre]
[ciudad] [codigo postal]
Cuba

Creo que el signo ese significa "e/" por esquina, seguida por el nombre de la otra calle, lo que me parece lo mas logico, pero agradeceria una confirmacion, o saber si es otra cosa. (No suelo enviar cartas a paises hispanohablantes). Gracias.

I think this sign is a form of "e/" for esquina, followed by the other street name, which would appear to make the most sense, but I'd be grateful for confirmation, or to know if it's something else. (I don't often send letters to Spanish-speaking countries). Thank you.

En español el símbolo de división ·/· (también /, ó raya con punto arriba y punto abajo), se usa para decir divido tal número "entre" tal número. En este caso, se usa el símbolo para decir "entre" tal calle y tal calle.
