1907: White City Roller Rink
This picture of the White City Amusement Park roller skating rink and dancing academy was posted on Facebook's "It's a Trenton Thing" by Marge Miccio. The skating rink and dancing academy was one of the largest of its time. A bandstand was located at the southwest end of the building - located at the Buchanan Avenue end of the Park at the end of the midway. The building became the vaudeville theatre in 1908.
