Main Office 144 Pearl St. / George Whiteside

George Whiteside was an express truckman with a business at 1 Cedar St. in the mid-1890s. Then around 1900 he moved to 144 Pearl St., where he stayed in business for another 20 years or so. This building on W. 37th St. was his home from around 1899 until 1910. He probably also had at least an office here for the business.

Whiteside immigrated to the US from Ireland in 1882 at the age of 22. He appears in the US Census for 1920 at age 61, born Ireland, living at 462 W. 43rd St. with his wife Jennie 62 and son George H. 18. At that time he listed his profession as "Trucking, Own Business."
