Squint Shot 112312

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!
