Removing OLD radiator with only one valve

We are trying to put in floor tile and need to remove a radiator while we do so. It's a radiator from 1925, floor-mounted, and from what I can tell, there is only one valve. It seems as though we are missing the lockshield valve. Is there any way for us to isolate this one radiator to remove it or do we have to wait until summer when we can shut the boiler down? Can you shut a boiler off completely in the summer? Can you drain the water from a boiler or what is the best way to handle the situation? Thanks!

Disconnecting Radiator

Is this a steam or hot water system?

you said one valve, you did not say two pipes.
Hot water systems need to be drained to remove radiators.
dont forget to take into account the difference in floor height new tile may produce.
