Tottenville History

“Tottenville in Prose” …continued #3

 
How many of these people & places did you know about?
 
I look forward to reading your comments.
 
 
 
“Away down on Main Street where the first Bank was yearsbefore
 
The first A&P store was just next door
 
There were two Barbers whom every one knew
 
They were Pete Dilge and Jake Bentz too
 
In Dilge’s barber shop you could take a bath for a quarter
 
Pete would furnish the tub, towel and water.
 
One more thing to you I must tell
 
About Nan Bedell and his drug store
 
In back of this store was the town’s first telephone station
 
Now a few doors away was Donaldson’s shoe store
 
Here Michael Andriany repaired most of the shoes people wore
 
Then comes Cuny’s jewelry store he sold many things
 
Such as watches, clocks and wedding rings
 
In those days the grocery stores were very few
 
But there was the Derickson Bros. and Enoch Corson too
 
As we go up Main street more in the town
 
We pass Dr. Washington who was a man of great renown.”
