Wimbledon Arcade - a Memory of Wimbledon.

Wimbledon had an 'Arcade' very close to Wimbledon Theatre, here you could purchase many items, from cottons to wet fish, but best of all cheap 45rpm. records ex-juke box versions ,many of which you had to add a 'spider 'to the centre.Does any else remember purchaseing records here.

Am I right in thinking the 'Arcade' was first the King's Cinemar, known as the 'Flea Pit' then a roller skating rink?
