Demolished - Art Deco 1930's Ballroom

PostWed Aug 03, 2016 12:50 pm

The last ballroom here in Belfast has been demolished. Construction began in 1929 and finished in 1932. The Orpheus Ballroom was the scene of many high society events and formal dances, with popular dance bands making over 200 BBC radio broadcasts live from the dance floor.
