It's quite an impressive structure isn't.

The rollerdrome was located on the corner of Washington Place and Bentley Avenue. The site is now Tellefson Park.

Here it is in 1948:



Doing a bit of googling, Tellefson Park was dedicated in 1976 as part of the bicentennial celebrations, but the Rollerdrome was already gone by at least 1972 according to the footage available at Historic Aerials.

Very impressive building and nice find, ER!
