Robin Hood Lanes in Edmonds, WA features a sign with a pin that's cut in an interesting shape.


UPDATE 04/17 : The Robin Hood Lanes shut down in 2013. after 50 years of serving bowlers with alley like entertainment. After the closure of several local lanes over the past decade, Robin Hood was typically very busy. After closing, the whole place was razed over a couple of years later. A Walgreens now occupies the site. 04-17

Here's an old deco building housing Interstate Lanes of Portland.


UPDATE 04/17 : Donn Allen's Interstate Lanes along Interstate Blvd in Portland shut it doors on April 30, 2016. The paint on the building was looking a bit chippy and the cool space age looking sign was well worn in 2015. Unfortunately, Interstate Lanes has met the fate of most of the other old bowling alleys. Which is they are no longer economically viable in many cases as league players get older and young fans are hard to gain. The future of this location? An apartment complex. 04-17
