Cooke for sale in Manchester
I came across an advert for a Cooke telescope for sale in Manchester
In March 1903 a Thomas Cooke telescope was being offered for sale by R. Holling-Drake of Edgerley House, Stockport.
It was described as a magnificent telescope 6 feet long with a 4.5 inch object Glass or lens. It was equatorially mounted and was equal to new.
I have no idea how much the telescope was valued at or whether the individual was known to astronomers in Manchester or if Edgerley House still survives.
