A Cooke and a Carpet Dealer


It would appear that carpet sellers were also interested in astronomy.

In 1865 Thomas Carter of Carter and Mercer, carpet dealers of Ripon in Yorkshire purchased a 2.5 inch telescope plus 3 astronomical eyepieces together with a pancratic terrestrial eye piece and a sun cap.

I have no further information on Thomas Carter.
