Welcome to Everything Croton, a collection of all things Croton--our history, our homes, our issues, our businesses, our schools--in short, EVERYTHING CROTON.
An old request----but better late than never. A reader has many fond memories of THE BOOK AND RECORD, which was located in the Shoprite Plaza in the 70's and early 80's (with locations in Baldwin place and Carmel as well)...and so...click on the images below. The "plate" ad is from the 1979 Croton Directory---you can see select scans from the directory, Parts 1, 2, 3 and conclusion--here. The other images, courtesy of an E.C. Elve, are from a late 70's Christmas ad, sliced and diced for your viewing pleasure BELOW.
And here is the obtiuary link for the owner, Herbert "Herbie" Allen Smith http://bit.ly/2In46xx
