Roller Skate Rinks; An Appreciation

Breaktime-header 3333
Do you have memories of roller skating at a roller skating rink? I sure do. I can, for example, remember skating into a pole and upon another occasion skating into the men's room. Neither event turned out well.

Still, it is a strong memory so I thought it would be fun to look back at some of the early roller skating rink signs, running from the turn of the 20th century through the 1940's.
