Default Chicago's Madison Gardens Rink

Now that I successfully uploaded an avatar, I feel ready to post!

So over thanksgiving, I visited the location of the former Madison Gardens rink on Madison and Rockwell in Chicago. My mother skated there during the war years (WWII) and her gang were dance skaters but also competed in speed skating. My curiosity has driven me to piece together what MG must have looked like those years. As well, to figure out what happened to it. While I have dug around in newspaper archives and Skate News of the period, it seemds to have just disappeared.

Any insights appreciated!
