Hudson in 1905: Part 80

The following is an excerpt from the booklet Illustrated Hudson, N.Y., published in 1905.

W. H. VAN TASSEL--Pharmacy. No. 547 Warren street. Telephone, H. R. 92-R. Dealer in pure drugs, proprietary medicines, toilet articles, stationery, etc. Compounding of prescriptions a specialty. Every resident of this city is familiar with this old established drug store, which has been in business here for the past thirty-four years, and has always been prominently before the public, having always taken a great interest in all that was for the advancement of the city of Hudson. The store is centrally located, handsomely and conveniently arranged, equipped with the most modern fixtures known to the business, while the stock carried comprises everything to be found at a first-class establishment of this character. Due regard is always taken to procure the very best quality of articles incident to these lines, and none but the freshest and best goods are offered to the public. In the preparation of physicians' and family prescriptions a specialty is made, and the well-known reputation of the house becomes a sufficient guarantee that the greatest care is exercised as to details and the quality and freshness of the ingredients. Mr. Van Tassel also conducts in connection with the general business the finest soda fountain in the city, where all the most delightful beverages of the season are dispensed. The large business requires a constant force of six people. In the prescription department specialists are employed. The business of Mr. Van Tassel has been built on the lines of the most advanced ideas in his profession, and these have been a potent factor in his natural success.
