this image that i had posted in my train station thread..........


got me wondering about the round building in the middle. I was guessing that it would be located between main and los angeles streets between 3rd and 4th as you can see the northern portion of the westminster hotel at 4th and main. turns out that's exactly where it was. This 1906 sanborn map identifies it as the panorama skating rink

unfortunately, i can't seem to track down any images of the skating rink just yet, (other than the one posted above), but i was able to find images of what ended up being on the site of the skating rink.

the adolphus theater at 320 Main street.

in later years, the adolphus building was converted into downtown parking.....Hello Los Angeles Street! Greetings from Main Street!
