Cookes for London


Kilpatrick & Co, 2 Northampton Square, London were listed as  merchants, in 1866 they ordered a 3.5 inch Thomas Cooke & Sons telescope and in 1867 another 3.5 inch Cooke which had to have wide field eye pieces to observe nebulae. In addition in 1867 a 4 inch Cooke telescope was also ordered.

What is a little confusing is that at the same address is Peter Kilpatrick I don’t know if he was related in any way he was a jeweller. He also had a branch in Melbourne, Australia.
