From the Carol Strober Collection

FacebookTwitterGoogle+PinterestShare

There’s been so much chatter from my last post about the Catskills that I decided to post several pictures from Carol Strober. Carol’s grandparents owned a rooming house in Ellenville, NY known as Campbell House. And for a large part of the Strober family, it was a country destination they remember. So here are Carol’s pictures, in no particular order.

    Many and sincere thanks, Carol, for sharing your family’s photos. No matter where we grew up, these images strike a chord, as they help us to connect with distant family members and a time gone by that so many of us remember from our childhoods. Wonderful photos!!

    A big Thank You to Paul for posting these images, enabling us all to learn about our common ancestry.

    This was absolutely fabulous. I havent seen Stephen in 45-50 years, probably 40-45 years for Carol.
    I well remember their old home on Market/Tuthill and, of course,the old TV-record shop.
    Thanks for sharing
