Miss Weber’s 22nd Street millinery shop

A faded ad painted in brick on a Chelsea building is all that’s left of Miss Weber, a hat maker who ran a store at 48 West 22nd Street.

“Take elevator”: If instructions were necessary, I’d guess that elevators were relatively new at the time the ad was painted.

So when does it date to? Well, Frank Jump posted a photo taken in 1997; he dates the ad to 1910.

And 14to42 says an Ida Weber ran a hat shop here from 1911 to 1913 before decamping to the millinery district on 39th Street.

    My father James Heroy went there. He was in the navy. He stopped in her shop. She gave him 5$. He was in the service and didn’t have much money. So she was generous. That was a lot of money then. Ida Weber was his aunt. Regula Weber (Ida’s mother) was my grandmother. I have 2 trunks that belonged to Ida.
    Ida and Regula came up to Newburgh
    to visit. Ida traveled in Europe and had an audience with the pope.
    I was impressed with what I heard about Ida.

    Correction:
    Ida Weber was James Heroy’s sister, Justine Heroy Kobelt’s aunt, not great aunt.
