One of the most popular 2012 series here at EverythingCroton was the "YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT YOU'LL FIND AT THE CROTON HISTORICAL SOCIETY" series. (You can see an index for 2012 at this link: http://bit.ly/XMczvk) So...as promised and back by popular demand, we've re-started the series for 2013...because the archives at the Society are not only filled with Croton's history but collections of ephemera and what-nots, the stuff of future exhibits.
This week, from the newspaper archives, a World War II Croton Lions time capsule, December 1942. Yes, you too can be a "paper trooper" and help lick Tojo and Hitler. CLICK ON THE PHOTO. The original recyclers...followed by a great 1938 ad below from the society's magazine archives for the latest movies from 20th Century Fox.
