Like roller rinks, it appears to me that bowling alleys are slowly becoming things of the past. Are there any still open in Houston? I don't hear people nowadays taking about being in leagues and competing with other teams. My cousin told me that he remembers a bowling alley in Gulfgate that was underground. Ah, the sounds of the balls hitting the pins! People applauding when someone would get a strike! Twisting open the top of a cold, bottled beer wrapped in tissue paper! Playing a pinball machine! Eating a greasy burger in the cafe! It's been well over 20 years since I've bowled. Is bowling another recreational pasttime that is losing popularity to home computers and big screen TVs?
Does anyone remember the first location of Braeswood Assembly of God Church? It was on Braeswood, of course. It was small. Then they built what was then a large building and moved into it on Fondren Avenue. I am searching to find the exact date when the new building was opened. Can anyone give me a clue? I believe it was 1973 or 4. Thanks
Hey guys, Im kinda new to this forum page but I recently took these photos in the East End of Houston. These are pictures from an abandoned foundry called Skyvana Foundry I have yet to have any info about the foundry. I took these with my phone so bare the quality. I hope to go back and take some more pictures. not sure why this came out sideways?
Hello, I am currently conducting a small project that involves capturing black & white photos of Houston's historic buildings. I am specifically looking for buildings from the the earliest 1800's to the early 1900's. I have a good collection going and looking for suggestions on other interesting buildings for the collection. Here is a link to the portfolio (work in progress): http://stuartpartridge.smugmug.com/Historic-Houston-BW All the best, Stuart
