Opened in 1912, the Hudson’s Department Stores are a Southwestern Ontario success story. With it’s inception in Stratford, Ontario, Harry Shapiro expanded his family business to Woodstock and London with the help of his children. The Hudson’s department store was a staple on the Dundas stretch (EOA). While the London store shut its doors in the mid 1980’s it’s stellar neon sign still hangs from the side of the building at Dundas and Adelaide Street. This design preserves the sign as seen in 2018 as you travel north on Adelaide St.
