The H. D. Hudson Company has been in business since 1905.,Over the next century, the company became known for its various,sprayers for household and farm use. ,This one has to be one of the very early hand sprayers because of,the old-style soldered-seam galvanized can used for the tank of the,sprayer. The graphics are still very readable in their standard vivid,red and blue. The lettering reads: “The Hudson Continuous Sprayer,,H. D. Hudson Manufacturing Co. Chicago, Minneapolis, New York,,Philadelphia, San Francisco, Made in U.S.A.”,The item is 17 inches long and is not in working order.,This would make a fine displayable artifact, especially for a family,with the “Hudson” name.
