Gossips Note: For the past three months, we've been serializing the content of Illustrated Hudson, N.Y., and exploring the businesses that existed here more than a hundred years ago. The exercise has provided a real sense of life in Hudson at the dawn of the last century, and many have enjoyed loitering in that bygone era. But, alas, all good things must come to an end, and with today's offering, we have come to the end of Illustrated Hudson, N.Y., appropriately perhaps for the holiday season with a dealer in fruits, nuts, and candies.
