Hudson in 1905: Part 90

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

J. M. JOHNS--Practical Horseshoer and Carriage Repairer. Corner Fourth and Diamond streets. Telephone, H. F. 56-A. Mr. Johns conducts a very extensive trade in the manner of horseshoeing and wagon repairing, and gives entire satisfaction to all those who come to him to have work done. He has been established here for the past thirteen years, and his business has grown so continually that he now engages two extra horseshoers and one carriage maker. The premises occupied by Mr. Johns are fully and completely equipped with all apparatus and appliances necessary to the proper carrying out of all work that comes under his superintendence, the most minute care being given to the making and repairing of carriages and wagons. 

The prices charged in all departments are the most reasonable, while patrons are assured of the finest work and the fairest treatment. No unnecessary delays need to be undergone on account of slight accidents, for Mr. Johns is always prepared to do all kinds of ordinary repairing while you wait. The setting of tires is one of the features of Mr. Johns' business. This he can do on the finest vehicles without heating or taking off the wheel, or any bolts, or in any way scratching the paint. He is agent for the famous "tire setter," a machine constructed especially for this work, of which the above is an illustration. These machines are sold for $75.00 cash or $100.00 on the installment plan. All work done by Mr. Jones is guaranteed to be first-class.
