Tottenville Bentley St. ferry postcard

The Aulic Restaurant/Hotel shown in this postcard belonged to Nelson Waldreaon, who professionally went by "Nelse Waldron" when he was a stage carpenter and later a Broadway producer. Nelse was best known for creating the famous elevator double stage at the Madison Square Theater for Steele MacKaye in the early 1880s. Later that decade he created the indoor cyclone for Buffalo Bill's Wild West show at Madison Square Garden. Nelse's son, Arthur George Waldreaon, became the chief architect for the Bronx. Nelson died in 1917.
