Description:
The Manitou Express trolley parked in front of the Bartholomay Pavilion at Ontario Beach Park in the 1890's, likely delivering barrels of drink. The Bartholomay was owned by Henry Bartholomay and was a beer pavilion and entertainment center. It was one of the many "Coney Island of Western New York" attractions at the beach that included vaudeville acts, singing waiters, high wire acts and drinking. A fire in 1913 nearly burned it down and a subsequent fire in 1919 finished it off.
