Hudson in 1905: Part 47

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

J. H. LOUDON--Dealer in Fresh, Salt, and Smoked Meats. Corner Union and Front streets. For seven years Mr. Loudon has conducted the store at the above location, and in that time he has built up a very gratifying business, and the people of this section of the city have come to rely upon whatever is purchased here as first-class in every respect. He deals in only the finest meats that can be obtained, and purchasers at his market have always found this to be a fact. His business has rapidly increased each year to where at the present time he requires the assistance of several men. All orders are filled in the promptest manner, and a specialty is made of country trade. Several wagons are engaged in making deliveries to all parts of the city and surrounding country.

The location of J. H. Loudon's market today--Hudson Terrace

Gossips Note: A check of the 1905 Hudson directory discovered that J. H. Loudon's market, identified in Illustrated Hudson, N.Y. only as being at the corner of Union and Front streets, was located at 27 South Front Street, which would have been approximately here.
