Per uboat.net:

The Dalton was a British steamer, weighing in at 3,486 tons that was built in 1904 by R. Craggs & Sons, Ltd., Middlesbrough. There were 3 casualties in the attack.

This picture is from the pages of Wiener Bilder. If you are interested in a full size picture, please PM me.

They say she was armed. From her broken back she was presumably torpedoed.
