Fluke Street
Fluke Street
Fluke Street was built in the 1880s, when there was a need for more lighthouse keepers, and for more machinery. I wonder if the name refers to the flat fish, also spelled fleuk or flook, a type of flounder which is caught off the East of Scotland? The word is from Old English, and is also used to describe the barb of an anchor, which is of similar shape. The fish is very good to eat.
