By sheer luck, while perusing the Los Angeles Central City thread a few minutes ago, I think I spotted the rooftop.

I believe our lovely ladies were playing roller-hockey (and tennis) on the roof that I've outlined in red.

That means the background in the vintage photos is the Los Angeles Athletics Club across the street. The skylight you see
is above the athletic club's swimming pool (shown below). You can see the very top of the skylight in two of the photos from 1926.

Now I need to go down to street level to find the name of the building that the roller-skaters were actually on. (unless someone beats me to it )
