Skating and Music entertainment in Richmond – by KS

There used to a lovely ice rink in Richmond and there were dance halls and there was always loads to do, you know, coffee shops.

So how did you get around, was it all by..?  Bus, yeh. I mean no-one owned a car.  

The dance hall, was that in Richmond?  It was in the same block as the Town Hall.  I think there’s a little road and Palm Court used to be down there and it was right on the corner and above.  I can’t remember what it was called now but, I mean, it was just so totally different to now.  We used to do proper dancing.
