Some people have asked about this a while ago. I found this picture of the dance hall.
It was burnt down I think early 1970s and was in Langholm Street Yoker(now Spiers hall Terrace or Close. I attended a few discos in the early 70s.

Note the picture is taken before Langholm Street was built.

Great photos - thank you.
I didn't know that that building was the Yoker Public School. It's still there, of course.

No it is not the public school building, which was old Yoker School and still exists. Speirs Hall was burnt down in the early 1970s. If you look at the front of the picture you will see the wall memorial which is in the park. Where Spiers Hall was is now the the Yoker Sports Centre, Speirs Hall Terrace. I live a few closes from it when it was called Langholm Street.
