Blog Guelph: Skating At The Carwash


Carwash, originally uploaded by TheGiantVermin.

According to the beginning page of the River Run Centre website, "The Speed Skating Rink opened in 1882 on the site of River Run Centre where fancy dress carnivals and balls were regular fare. In later years the Speed Skating Rink was used as a warehouse, and in 1991 the building was destroyed by fire. Stones from the front of the building were kept for reconstruction of a fa├žade in the parkland in front of River Run."

Photographer TheGiantVermin captures the stone facade rather nicely in this pic. And I'm told the folks at the carwash do a dandy job of custom cleaning your car.
