The Hub Clothing Company - Duluth
and The Hub Clothiers - Virginia

The Hub Clothing Company was located at 225 West Superior Street and at 107 West Superior Street in downtown Duluth. William Abrahamson was the proprietor in 1903 and Isaac Abrahamson was president. The business apparently went bankrupt in about 1906 and again in 1921.

The Hub Clothiers was located in Virginia and was owned by the Rubenstein family, brothers Joe, Max and Harry. Although the stores shared a name, I do not know if the businesses were related. Published ads and news articles about the two stores are shown below.
