    I bowled here in the mid 1970’s thru the mid 1980’s on the Thursday Night Men league.

    Here’s a look inside per Google view.

      Ralph–
      Thanks for the link. Timber was one of the houses we visited in the North End Traveling League in the early 1970s. Pat Peiper, the Cubs’ longtime PA announcer who was close to 90, would often show up to watch the matches; I was told that he lived nearby.

    Not much has changed over the years since I bowled there. Bob was the bartender back then, (now owner). I think a guy named Yogi use to owned this house before Bob. New lanes installed (over the old ones) after the roof collapsed around 1979. That is why you step up on to the lanes from the scoring area. And the addition of the game room which use to be part of the store front just to the east.
