A House Furnished Complete

A new house complete 1891.png
In 1891, Wooster’s of North Pearl Street was offering to completely furnish the residents of Albany homes for a low, low $396.25. That’d be about $9900 in today’s money. And you can see from the detailed listing they weren’t skimping . . . even servants got a mirror, and guests were provided with a comfortable hair mattress. Well, would you let your guests sleep on straw? The live geese feather pillows don’t sound too restful, though, and I’ve heard what happens when you squeeze a goose.
