A Cooke for a Pub


Alfred Compton a Publican from Barnsbury Terrace in London I don’t know what pub he ran ordered a 3.75 inch telescope from Thomas Cooke & Sons in 1864. The instrument had a focal length of 4 feet.

This particular instrument was made in York but sent down to the Cook & Sons shop in Southampton Street London to be collected.
