Master Upholsterer Arthur Gaudreau
Arthur Gaudreau was the owner and master upholsterer at Hingham Upholstery in Hingham, MA. Arthur, his wife Dorothy and three kids lived in an apartment above the upholstery shop. Most weekends, Arthur and the family, would go to their second home in Pelham, NH. Eventually Arthur sold the Pelham home, the Hingham Upholstery business, the upholstery building and retired to Lubec, Maine. In the photo, the house behind the monument was the Gaudreau’s.
I was an upholstery apprentice for Arthur at Hingham Upholstery in the early 1970s. I regretfully lost track of Arthur and Dorothy once they moved to Maine. If anyone reading this blog has any information about Arthur and Dorothy Gaudreau and their children I would love to hear from you.
