Overton’s Coney Island Directory 1883
In writing a history for St. Paul’s Evangelical Lutheran Church of Coney Island, New York, I noted that C.C. Overton donated the bells from the old Brighton Chapel to St. Paul’s. When it was torn down from West Fifth Street and rebuilt on West Eighth Street, St.Paul’s sold these bells to a church near the Brooklyn Library that also had a school. Its name now escapes me.
From my time in Coney Island, I have a Directory prepared by Overton in 1883. It is not in such good shape, so I have not copied all of it, just the pictures, a map, and a history of Coney Island from pages 42-43. All told the booklet has 92 pages. I also copied the cover and the table of contents. Today August 19, 2015, I just added the Rules for Bathing, pages 50-56.
