Yesterday's post showed part of the building at the southwest corner so we could talk about the Domestic Pickle Works. Before my friend -- someone who has known this village intimately for 60 years -- and I continued on in the car, we looked across South Grand Avenue.
At one time, there was a mirror-image building in the parking lot just south of Aleta's Flower Shoppe. In the 1960s, Bert Strong had a pool hall in that building. He also offered duck-pin bowling.
I had never heard of duck pin bowling so I went to trusty-old wikipedia and read up on it. You can too by clicking here. I'm thinking it would be fun to have something like this in town now!
