[QUOTE=ethereal_reality;6764607] 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 atrium in two of the photos from 1926.


Nice find ER - I might have located the place in a year or two.

The ladies look like they can certainly roller skate, but this hockey stick is about a foot too long to be of any real use to this girl.
