    Default Can Anyone Identify This Building?

    Can anyone perhaps tell me what this building was originally?

    Mulberry Street, Catharine Street

    I've never really paid any attention to it until today when I was up there taking some photos.

    I'm not certain but I believe it used to be an ice rink

    It was a roller skating rink, and was opened in 1932 as the Ritz Roller Rink.
    In 1960 the building was taken over by the Rodney Youth Centre.

    Liverpool's only ice-skating rink was in Prescot Road, next door to the Casino cinema (later Top Rank Bingo).

    I remember when it was a car showroom as late as the 50's, the roller rink was still open too.
