    again… different size bowling balls on the ball returns… it looks like the bowler had his choice of ten pin or duckpin bowling… or possible candlepins too???

    • J.R. Schmidt Says:

      You’re correct about the smaller balls. When bowling alleys had pinboys, many establishments in the East could give patrons a choice of what size of pins they wanted to bowl against, since the alley itself had the same dimensions for all games. Obviously, this practice couldn’t be continued with automatic pinsetters.
