For village residents, the name Edward (Ed) Rondthaler will be forever synonymous with Croton-on-Hudson. You can read more about him here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Edward_Rondthaler
Some years ago, Rondthaler donated his scrapbooks to The Croton Historical Society. Filled with newspaper clippings, some notes and photos, they are a time capsule of village life...and as promised, Everything Croton and the trusty elves will be sharing some of these pages with you throughout 2015. Here's Part 1 in no particular order; click on the images below, mainly from the 1960's.
