Carter Bowl
Anaheim, CA
Photo by RoadsidePeek.com

A keen example of the fate of our roadside treasures, the marquee of the Carter Bowl in Anaheim was changed in 1999 from the fabulous googie sign on the left (just look at those colors!) to the booorrrring marquee on the right. Another one bites the dust. 01-99

The Holiday Bowl sits in a tenuous spot next the the vacant Majestic Pontiac lot. Soon to see the property managment sign? Let's hope not.

Unfortunately, the Holiday Bowl met its demise in 2003 and is the building has been repurposed to a Starbucks. See Roadside Peek's Spotlight on the Holiday Bowl for more information. 03-99
