Hudson in 1905: Part 48

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

GEORGE H. MACY--Cigars and Tobacco. No. 406 Warren street. For the past fifteen years Mr. Macy has supplied the smokers of Hudson with their smoking supplies. He has built up a trade that is both profitable and enduring, giving his patrons the best in the market in return for their custom. Mr. Macy is the eastern distributor for the Banner Cigar Manufacturing Company, and handles their choicest brands of goods. He does business on the wholesale and retail basis, extending his trade over a large portion of the adjoining country. In addition to the retail trade of cigars, tobacco, and cigarettes, Mr. Macy also carries a large assortment of the most excellent smokers' articles and supplies, including pipes, cigar cutters, tobacco pouches, cigar cases, racks, etc. The business done is sufficient to demand the employment of three assistants, who take care of the wholesale department. A delivery wagon is at the service of the patrons of the house, and goods are delivered to all parts of the city.

Gossips Note: The Banner Cigar Manufacturing Company was located in Detroit. This Banner cigar box dates from 1912.
