MORE FABULOUS VINTAGE WEBSITES, FINDS, ETC. FROM EVERYTHING CROTON

Yep--we love ephemera--Our Flickr friend FPDA is uploading a great vintage booklet he found--PROFITABLE SODA FOUNTAIN OPERATION--from 1954--oh for the days when these kind of places were still around. Cherry coke anyone? Lime Rickey? See more at bit.ly/21FWd9T

That's followed by a wonderful "new" putz house artfully displayed by Matthew Und--love the subtle color palette used here--and finally from 1925, a great shot of a very young Myra Loy. Click on the photos and enjoy.

Character actor George Kennedy has died; we loved him best in Cool Hand Luke http://www.cnn.com/2016/02/29/entertainment/george-kennedy-obit-feat/index.html
