Hudson in 1905: Part 16

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

IDLE HOUR BILLIARD PARLOR428 Warren Street. This is one of the most famous resorts of its kind in Hudson, and one that is well managed at all times. Its able proprietor, Mr. J. A. Tanner, understands the needs of the patrons of an establishment of the character, and has striven in every way to make his the finest of its kind in the city. The business was established a year ago, and since that time it has attained a reputation that has made it very popular among the players of the city. Everything is kept in the most attractive order, and the tables used are the latest pattern of their kind, being the product of the leading manufacturer of its kind in this country. In connection with the general business a fine line of cigars and soft drinks are carried.

Gossips Note: In an interesting bit of pre-zoning urban design, the Idle Hour Billiard Parlor was right next door to F. R. Townsend's funeral parlor.
