There goes the Palais…



Palais demolition Fountainbridge Edinburgh

This was the front of The Palais at Fountainbridge on Saturday 8th October – the final demolition commenced on Wednesday.

I thought they may have been keeping the front as a feature of whatever is knocked up in that space next, but it would appear not.

Here’s the back view:


Palais Dancehall Edinburgh demolished

I only remember it as a bingo hall and that closed down many years ago, but in its day it was one of Edinburgh’s many dancehalls, where live orchestras would play for dancing.  It was the thing for the kids to do.

I wonder how many of my generation of Edinburgh people are here today because of relationships which started in dancehalls like this.
