1930s concrete stool/steps repair? with PICTURES!

Need some advice on repairing my 1930s concrete steps. Can I just patch this up with Quikcrete?

You could try one of the Quikrete patching products, having very small (if any) coarse aggregate--the rock in regular Quikrete will make it difficult to finish and feather-edge. No repair product will adhere very well if the existing, old concrete is unsound, crumbling, and/or chalking. Complete removal and replacement would be a better way to go.

Oh, and I think the word is "stoop." A stool is a piece of furniture to sit on, often in a kitchen or at a liquor establishment.

...or the white thing that you sit on and then flush in the bathroom (hopefully, before the dogs get in there and drink it!).
