“Tottenville inProse”  …#6  … conclusion
 
Here’s the final postof” Tottenville in Prose.”  Let me knowin the comments both your thoughts about it and any information you may want toshare with other readers.
 
“There was Hubbard R. Yetman we can’t forget
 
His real estate business is going on yet
 
He would sell real estate and insurance and make out yourbill
 
Now it is being run by his daughter Laura and his son Bill
 
Where Dr. Stauff’s dental office stands now
 
Taylor Elliott once grazed a cow
 
The largest ship yard in the town was run by a man name A.C.Brown
 
If there was a fire all the people would know
 
Because the S.S. White’s whistle would blow
 
One thing in the town which some people thought nice
 
When they wenht to the rink to skate on the ice
 
Another thing thought so grand
 
When they listened to old Tottenville’s band
 
And Saturday night they would dance or watch basketball
 
At the old Knights of Pythias dance hall
 
Some people had a new place to go
 
Jim Laird opened a picture show
 
Amboy Road had a hard name to make know
 
I will tell yu about this some other time.”
 
-SCOTTY
