Abandoned Dance Floor

Posted by
Elaine Hancock (Olney, United States) on 29 May 2015 in Miscellaneous.

This outdoor dance pavilion was rather large. I could just imagine all the dancing that must have happened here! It was built in 1923.

And in need of a good sweeping! I like your sue of the angled floor board to lead to the curtain edge.
