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.

  1. I too lost track of the Gaudreaus. I dated their son Steve, when we were in high school. We met through band, we both played saxophone. He went into the. Navy, was stationed in Pensacola, Florida. Our relationship ended shortly after.
    I remember visiting the Gaudreaus in Hingham and in Pelham.
    I now work in Hingham at Pyne-Keohane Funeral Home. I take
    South St to get there. I believe I pass their former residence and Arthur’s shop. I don’t remember the address to be certain though. I know this wasn’t much help, hopefully you’ll find the information you are seeking.
