Daltons Bar and Beer Garden

Dear Mr. Coney Island...
Wonderful site for us Coney Island natives.
I grew up at 2953 West 35th Street near the corner of Surf Avenue.
There was a bar owned by the Dalton family just across from McCabe's bar.
My father remembered seeing his first motion pictures there in the beer garden.
Eddie and Patricia Dalton were childhood playmates of mine.
Do you have any photos of the bar and beer garden?
Thanks and keep up the great work.
