Information for this tour was contributed by Ken Roe.
Built in 1888, it was first used as the Trocodero Skating Rink which opened in 1889. In 1904 it became the James William Skating Rink and Music Hall which lasted until 1913, when it was converted into a cinema. This was short lived and from 1920 until 1982 it was used as a body parts centre for the motor industry. When they moved out it was used as a furniture store until 1994, since when it has remained empty.
