But we didn’t have any place to keep them where we could find them when we wanted them. Then we got the idea of making a scrap-book and it has become one of the most valuable things we have in our store . . . we thought all this information might be useful to some of our friends too, so we got up a few of these books for them . . ." C.P. Judson entered into the hardware business with his brother-in-law in 1882 and were known as Cole & Judson. Later, in 1886, he was the sole owner of the business. By 1906 the store was so prosperous that it moved to new, larger quarters in a building known as the Judson Block. Scarce.
