1965 Demolition of the RKO Palace/Rochester NY NEVER BEFORE SEEN PHOTOS!

Many thanks to Rochester Organist TIM SCHRAMM for alerting us to these awesome – and sad – photos of the demolition of the RKO Palace as posted on rochestersubway.com.  We also thank RUSS SHANER, RTOS President, who shared these important historic photos with the website.
