South Main Roller Rink At Holcombe & Main St.

Highrise Tower

Recommended Posts

I was browsing the newspaper Texas Jewish Herald dated October 25, 1934 and came across a business ad for South Main Roller Rink located at Bellaire (now Holcombe) and Main. Phone number: had, 0251.

Is this a new skating rink that we never knew about? There are other South Main skating rinks:

Gateway Roller Rink At 8370 South Main St.

Gateway Swim And Skate At 8510 South Main St.

Rolls-Away Roller Rink On South Main St.

Is it just me or is this building a good shape for a roller rink?

We, HAIF, was previously speculating it was either the the End of Main Grill, or the End of Main Dance Hall.

I came across the newspaper advertisement again today and it rung the bell.  We found the South Main Roller Rink?!?!
