Photograph was edited for publication purposes. The Los Angeles Memorial Sports Arena, located at 3939 S. Figueroa Street, was officially opened on July 4, 1959 by then Vice President Richard M. Nixon and was designed by Welton Becket; general contractor was L.E. Dixon Company. The last event at the arena was a Bruce Springsteen concert. The arena was closed on March 19, 2016 and demolished to make room for a new soccer stadium. Photograph caption dated March 1, 1965 reads "Ferocious Blade defenseman Harley Hodges (9) sends Portland's Con Madigan (26) sprawling, as Los Angeles goalie Jack McCartan (1) and Art Jones, bottom right, watch action on other side of rink. Blades knocked off league-leaders 6-3 last night at Sports Arena for second straight weekend victory."
