Company Names, addresses, dates1:
  Martin J. McHugh, 1201 K NE (1907-1914)
  Martin J. McHugh, 1205 K NE (1915-1917)

Notes:
Martin Joseph McHugh (b. 1880) ran a saloon. His saloon at 1201 K NE must have been popular, as it had many former owners:
  Elizabeth Stubener (1888-1895)
  Adolf Herzog (1896-1897)
  Charles Repp (1898-1900)
  Thomas Molloy (1901-1905)
Herzog and Molloy both have bottles listed in the book2.
McHugh's saloon was listed up to 1917, after which there were no more saloons due to prohibition. Martin's draft card from 1917-1918 indicated that at that time he was employed by T.J. Drury.
