The A to Z of 2205: Cook St

Cook St was named after Henry Aloe Cook, an early landowner in the area.(The Origins of Street Names in the Municipality of Rockdale, compiled by Alderman Ron Rathbone, 1990)

Above and below: The older style street signs, above, which was black on white wood, have been replaced by the metal blue on yellow in most places. A few of the older style remain.

Below: One of the things I love about the area are the flights of steps you come across in various places there are rocky outcrops or ridges, enabling you to cut through from one street to another
