One of the EverythingCroton elves sent an odd little story today from the Brooklyn Eagle dated January 2, 1926 - entitled THE NUT. It details the life of a colorful Croton resident named Harold Sharpe a.k.a. Harold Bringhurst, who allegedly lived here in the 20's and was written by Fannie Hurst, then the highest paid short story writer. Click on the photos below--we boosted the poor quality of the images as best we could.
