Hudson in 1905: Part 86

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

J. T. RIDER--The oldest dealer in Pianos and Organs now in the city. The store is located at 605 Warren street, and has been established since 1887. Both telephones are used: H. R. 144-R, Col. 110. Here may be found a full line of the standard makes of pianos and organs to select from, as well as musical instruments of all kinds, sheet music, and books. The special makes of pianos on sale are the Sohmer, Knabe, Francis Bacon, and Kroeger. Special attention is always given to tuning, polishing, boxing, and shipping. There are pianos to rent, exchanged, or sold on easy payments. A large stock is carried, and besides a piano parlor located in Great Barrington, Mr. Rider has men traveling through the counties of Columbia and Berkshire to present his goods. In all six men are employed. Satisfaction is guaranteed on every sale, and the best treatment is accorded to all.
