We don't come across a lot on Compagnie Parento, a.ka. the "perfume factory" on Brook Street, but when we do...see below for an April 26, 1945 article from the Croton-on-Hudson News, courtesy of the outstanding newspaper archives at The
Croton Historical Society. Also included are some other items from the same page, including Croton's efforts in the United National Clothing Collection; LOTS of familiar "old Croton" names here from the business community, Holy Name of Mary, the Croton Lions, Dr. Semisa, Sol Gerstein and others. Click on the photos.
