Holmes Store Rounds N
Out 80 Years' Service
Sunday was the eightieth anni
versary of the founding of D. H. be
Holmes Company's Sto're. , te
It was in 1842 that Mr. Holmes' hi
moved to Chartres street, then near St
the center of New Orleans' gay so- cO
cial life. hi
Four years afterward, he took the
daring step of moving to Canal in
street, occupying the present store ci
site little more than the space now so
taken up by the present store's show pi
During the years which followed D. S
H. Holmes gradually purchased of
neighboring real estate, and finally al
the entire space from Canal street to ci
Iberville Street. t
The city directory of 1838 records tl
D. H. Holmes in business in Mag- IH
In the first Holmes store, there n
was a floor space of 100 square feet. a
Today 225,000 square feet are cov
ered by the various departments of
the big establishment.
Some of the more recent steps in
the development of the store have L
been: 1911, Dauphine street entrance tI
built; 1913, Canal street front re- i
built and enlarged: 1916, rotunda t
filled in, adding 25,000 square feet
of floor Iberville street built. The'
latter building houses the delivery
system ,lee eream plant, bakery,.
laundry, cold storage plant and heat
tag apparatus, space; 1919, flve. C
story warehouse in and made room E
for the new restaurant which now
is a thriving department.
Up to 1885 the store was a one-man c
Iosaniuation. Mr. Holmes in that k
year associated with his as partnes g
Samuel Goeghegan and Samuel Wal- I
ler, the latter in charge of the New I
York buying office. Upon the death I
of Mr. Holmes in 1898 Mr. Geoghe- s
gan took charge. When in 1902, he a
went to Ireland, the managemen
passed to DanIel H. Holmes, Jr., and C
Dr. C. H. Thomas, son-in-law of the
D. H. Holmes Company, Limited
formed in 1905, with D. H. Holmes,
Jr., as president. Mr. Geoghegan '
was resailed from Ireland as vice
president and manager The other
directors were John J Gaanon,
treasurer; Bernard McCloskey, Rob
oert W. Wilmot, William P. Brown,
Hugh McCloskey, Gastaf R. West
tldt, muanuel 8teinhardt Osar L.
Pntnam and )ank B. iayne.
On Mr. Geoghgan's death in 194,
he was replased by W. J. Gilbert as
manager, and Mr. Gilbert, who died
in 1911, by Pred W. waas. Mr.
Evans is manager and prItldent.
