How well do you know the history of one of Mississauga’s oldest neighbourhoods?

While Cooksville has had a storied history ever since its foundation all the way back in 1808, much has changed even in the past few decades for the community built around the 5 and 10 (now Dundas and Hurontario).

If you’re wondering what Cooksville looked like in the 40s and 50s, PAMA has put together a compilation of old photos courtesy of photographer Russ Cooper.

“Cooper was a photographer for the Toronto Telegram, covering the communities west of the city in the 1950s,” PAMA says.

How much of old Cooksville do you recognize?
