Ned Day Bowling Tips? (1948)

Besides being one of the greatest bowlers in history, Ned Day is reckoned as one of the smoothest stylists.  So what happened here?

The photos on this post are from Ned’s 1948 instruction book, How to Bowl.  They are not the usual stop-action of a champion’s form.  Rather, they are illustrations of common mistakes.

So we have here some examples of how not to bowl.  Ned liked the photos so much that he used them again in his next instruction book in 1959.  The title of that volume is How to Bowl Better.

If you’re ready for an antidote now, click on the link for a stop-action of Ned Day’s real form—

    Those windows in the background on the Ned Day photos remind me of Lawrence-Western Lanes.

      Could be. I know that one 1940s movie short was filmed at Pla-Mor Lanes, and another short at Bowling Lanes.
