Cooks Hill used to be pretty wild, back in the day. Same with Wallsend, Mayfield, Ellermore Vale and any other number of suburbs that have been gentrified, domesticated and tamed by the 21st century. Not Hamilton North, no sir. This is still the only suburb of Newcastle where you can still see GENUINE pirates doing their shopping. At Franklins.
Ha harr! Avast! Buckle your swash!
