Hattie's

 
Posted by Picasa


This old building is located near downtown next the the civic center. I have always wondered about Hattie and who she was. Sadly I can't find any information about it.

I wish you could have found out something about her.

From the size of the building, it appears she (or he) must have been pretty successful.

I found it online at 703 Railroad Street in your city. It doesn't say much but it is listed. LOL

I've heard of the Mad Hatter...but not Hattie the Upholsterer...

She must have had a thriving business going at one time - that's not a small building!

Yes, it would be interesting to know more...and you could probably find out but that kind of investigation is time intensive...

We'll just look at the nice building.


Thanks for your squirrel house info...I intend to look into that!

And have a great Monday!

Hmmmm---I wonder who Hattie is or was. Keep digging---we need to know. MB

Tanya said...

Don't you hate that?! I'm always trying to dig up info on places I find and am amazed when there is nothing on it!

I love the look of Hattie's beautiful brick building, happy puffy clouds floating above. I wonder when it was built ...

Paul said...

That is a problem in a city, in a small town most likely people recall who did what and where and what came of them.
Cities are not like that, few remember and fewer care.

It appears to be well bult and still in good shape. Perhaps someone could convert the building into living space...they took an old bakery here and made nice loft-style condos. Smells good too.

I sure hope someone makes use of a great building like that rather than it being torn down. Love the brick. Keep digging for info on Hattie. Hope you had a good weekend Lois!

Pacey said...

Yeah, who's Hattie? :)

James said...

Very interesting and nice looking old building. These are great for taking pictures.

Love the old building and the sign. Looks like the new developments are encroaching - similar to San Pedro over here.
RE Hattie -this is as far as my search got me: http://davidparadice.com/MGB/PatienceBio.html - "The seat covers were made by Hattie Richardson of Hattie’s Upholstery in Tallahassee, FL. The basic design of the seat covers is consistent with a 1971 MGB, but the orange piping was Cheri’s idea." Maybe Cheri and David Paradice can tell us more?? (I think she is on Facebook.)

That is the chicken said...

I like these old, run down buildings...this one is not in too bad shape. I can imagine it housing an antique store in a future life...unless they pave paradise and put up a parking lot!

is it in use?

Hyde DP said...

It is certainly a neat little factory.

I guess it is just sitting there empty? I wonder what is in inside.

I met Hattie back in the 80's. She covered a couple of chairs for me , beautiful job. Then about 8 yrs ago she covered the arm rest in my sports car. I need to have a couple of chairs covered now. The number I gave is not working.
