Hudson in 1905: Part 26

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

HENRY ANABLE--Dealer in Wool, Leather, and Findings. No. 741 Columbia street. First door above the St. Charles Hotel. A successful career of over fifty years' standing has made the name of Henry Anable well known and highly respected in the business circles of Hudson. For that number of long years he has labored in the service of the people of this city, dealing fairly and honestly with one and all, and in return enjoying the patronage of a large portion of the population. Mr. Anable handles wools, leather, and findings, and will pay cash for wool, hides, tallow, raw furs, calf and sheep skins. His business is with such materials, and in that business no one is more skilled or experienced than Mr. Anable, for he understands it in its every detail, having been connected with it for so many years. The trade of the house is such as to necessitate the employment of four assistants, all of whom are under the person [sic] supervision of the proprietor himself. Satisfaction guaranteed in every respect, and the finest treatment along with the fairest profits.

741 Columbia Street today--Vasilow's Confectionery


  1. Vasilow's used to be at 505 Warren Street, which was next door to Maratskey's Jewelers, which my mother owned until 1969. Couldn't beat their candy and ice cream sodas.

  2. My wife’s cousins owned Maratskey’s Jewelers.
    Since her father died many years ago we have been trying to contact that side of the family. Sally are you familiar with the Maratskey family ?
