Description:

Rare engraving of the short lived ice skating rink in Sydney. The building was originally a Catholic Guild Hall, the venue was renovated and converted into the Academy of Music in 1879. After four years of limited commercial success, however, it reverted back to its original name and use. After undergoing further renovations in 1880 (seating was also expanded to 800), the venue opened as the Gaiety Theatre on Boxing Day. Dan Tracey operated a successful season at the Gaiety in the early 1890s (1892-93) but it was never an overly popular venue. It was soon afterwards abandoned as an entertainment venue.
