Here's another classic ten pin alley marquee ... it's the Beverly Bowl. It's a great place, circa 1960. Nice little original coffee shop they call the AMF Laneside Cafe.

If you're from the San Gabriel Valley and think of Santa Anita, the Santa Anita
Racetrack comes to mind with its grandstand, flags, and the like. Well,
this marquee for the Santa Anita Bowl maintains this feel. Unfortunately,
the bowling was razed over last year.

run down but at least its still open.
