Another Picture from the Past

Bruce Mitchinson, whose family owned 72 North Fifth Street just across the street from the "Armory houses," sent Gossips this picture he found in a family album. 

The picture, which was taken by Mitchinson's great aunt or great uncle, shows the residents of the three apartments at 67-71 North Fifth Street standing on their front porches. The woman at the far left is another of Mitchinson's great aunts. It is not known exactly when the picture was taken, possibly in the early to mid-1930s, but before the shrubs and awnings seen in this picture were added.

  1. Interesting. Hudson in 1930 looks much more prosperous than Hudson today. According to Wikipedia (whose source I think is the Census Bureau), the population of Hudson in 1930 at 12,337 was almost twice today's population of 6,713. Hudson's population today is about where it was in 1840.
