Hudson in 1905: Part 11

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

E. W. HEERMANCE--Empire Steam Laundry, No. 715-717 Warren street. Telephones, Columbia 168, H. R. 80-D. An enterprise that has contributed largely to the comfort and convenience of the residents of Hudson and vicinity for the past two years is that known as the Empire Steam Laundry. Although established many years ago, the present proprietor, upon coming into the management, renovated and improved the plant so as materially to increase its utility and capacity for work. It is now one of the best and most important institutions of its kind in the county. The plant consists of one large floor equipped with all the latest and most improved laundry machinery, which is manipulated by a working force of five experienced hands. Both the gloss and domestic finish are used. A good business is done, and one wagon is in use to call for and deliver laundry to all parts of the city.
