Hudson in 1905: Part 6

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

HERMAN H. REDLINGHOUSE--Tin, Sheet Iron, and Copper Worker. No. 11 North Sixth street. Hudson River Phone. Mr. Redlinghouse has been the proprietor of this establishment for just one year. The business was formerly conducted by Mr. E. H. Davis, who was manager for the twenty years previous. The present owner, however, is a man thoroughly competent to carry on the successful work of Mr. Davis, and has already proved his capability and efficiency during the short time during which he has had control of the business. Mr. Redlinghouse is a tin, sheet iron and copper worker of no mean ability, understanding thoroughly the trade in its every phase. An important specialty is made of furnace, cornice and skylight work, contracts for which Mr. Redlinghouse will complete at the lowest rates possible, at the same time doing the work with promptness and accuracy. Four assistants are employed by Mr. Redlinghouse.

11 North Sixth Street today

Gossips Note: The Warren and Wetmore building at 560 Warren Street, designed for the Hudson City Savings Institution and now occupied by the Department of Motor Vehicles and the County Clerk's office, was completed in 1910. The addition to the building, which stands where 11 North Sixth Street once stood, was constructed sometime later. The following picture shows how the corner of Warren and Sixth streets and the row of buildings on the west side of Sixth Street between Warren Street and Prison Alley must have looked in 1905.
