Moving Picture World, June 17, 1911:
“The fact that Coney Island, N. Y., is fast becoming one of the central points for the exhibition of moving pictures. and even now is assuming the name ‘Flicker Alley,’ is strongly evidenced by the number of sales recorded by manufacturers and dealers in moving picture apparatus and supplies.
“The latest arrivals in the exhibiting field at this popular resort are Morris Goldberg, operating the Prospect Hotel, Mr. E. F. McGann, of McGann’s Hotel, and Dickers Hotel, all if which have installed a Powers Cameragraph Number 6*, and equipment.”
