Hudson in 1905: Part 91

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

JESSE A. COOKE--Manufacturer and Wholesale and Retail Dealer in Choice Havana and Domestic Cigars. Office and factory, No. 349 Warren street. Mr. Cooke has had the advantage of only three years' location in the mercantile circles of Hudson, but in that time has succeeded in building up a most remarkable and profitable trade. He makes and handles cigars for the trade, besides carrying on a retail business. His store is very attractively appointed and stocked with a large variety of the best made cigars and tobaccos. A complete supply of pipes and smokers' articles is also in stock. Mr. Cooke is an experienced cigar maker and has had a good many years' training in the trade. He engages two assistants and keeps one man on the road representing the goods of the house. H. O. Cigar is a specialty.

  1. According to John Craig's research, numbers 347, 349, 351 and 353 Warren Street were bought in 1910 by the Hudson Improvement Company, a private business concern.

    The Improvement Company's "Playhouse Theater" opened on this site on March 25, 1912. The theater burned down on February 26, 1938.
