About Me

My name is Sheila-Anne, I was raised in Tottenville and started collecting postcards in 2002. When I first started collecting the postcards I searched the internet for information but had no luck. Since there isn’t much on the Internet regarding Tottenville I thought that others would enjoy viewing what I have so I decided to create a website regarding them and the town of Tottenville. Hope you enjoy your time here. Take care and thank you for visiting my site.

Wow, quick action on those pictures. Thank you very much Sheila-Anne. I'll see what else I can come up with. P.S. My wife and I lived at 7631 Amboy Rd. (circa 1814), previously owned by the Sizemores. I know it was featured in a magazine in the 50's, was wondering if you have the tools to find anything else about it? Thanks Bob

Ah ! I don't know you because you are almost a decade younger than I. (ouch, did I say that ?) Well, it is nice to meet you. I don't think you had any older sibs my age -because the name is not familiar at all. My older sister (circa: 1948) may have known your parents if they went to T'ville HS. I'll ask her this weekend. I cannot wait to get into Mom's pics. I really hope find at least one or two for you.. I also want to find Pop's business memorabilia - he was well known on all of the Island for over 50 yrs. His name still comes up in some circles

8:35 AM on May 8, 2009 was up until about a week ago, now we are getting well int the 90s (LOL) - but yes, it is Paradise; so clean and shiny. It has its downsides too - like the wages, and no Unions...a few other things, but all in all it is a nice place to be.
BTW - you have an older post from Steve Kathcart. I tried to reach him by the email address he posted, but it came back unknown.Maybe no longer working there. I know it's a long shot, but do you by any chance know another one for him. If so, could you email him & give him mine (& my name) thanks. AND, wanted to ask you, can you email me with your T'ville background/history ? Like where you went to school, years, what street you grew up on, maiden name, etc. I think someone with your passion for T. must be a native, but your name is not familiar to me. you have my email. Thanks - talk to you soon !

Hello Sheila, glad you contacted me because I am on my way for a long weekend to Mom's. I am going to be going thru pics for a surprise for her, so I will look for your site as well. Suer hope I find some. My aunt is still on Page Ave- probably the last 'old' house on the block- she is supposed to be going thru her's as well. I'll ask her to search for T'ville pics too. Stay well. Mary

yes I have the house photo, but was looking a little earlier. My house is the Androvette house. With the help of the tottenville historical soc. I might have more detailed info ont he house. I can say that the home was built in the year 1886. The land was owned by the Androvette family, but in all likely hood the land was sold to Francis jane Dubois and she built the home.
