8th St Delicatessen [Davis's]

Does anyone know or remember the 8th Street Delicatessen, also (or during a certain period of time) known as Davis's Delicatessen. It was owned and operated by Samuel Davis, approximately 1937 to 1964. I would be grateful to hear from anyone who might have any recollections, documents, or photos of this establishment. Thank you.
