  • 1910-1920 Bowling Alley Brunswick

    My husband and I bought a building and found a 3 lane bowling alley in the basement. After doing some research I learned that the bowling alley was put in November of 1910. I believe that the semi automatic pinsetters were added in the 20’s. It looks as though all three lanes are completely intact. The gutters and ball returns are solid wood and all have The Brunswick Balke Collender Co. plaques. The pinsetter has no brand on it. My husband needs to figure out ASAP what we should do with this. Does anyone have any information on this equipment and/or suggestions?

      These are great pics of some classic equipment, thanks so much for sharing.

      I would guess it depends on how you are utilizing the rest of the building.

      If you do a google search for vintage bowling restoration projects there are many examples of what can be done with very old equipment.

      If you plan to have it removed I would guess than any of the bowling companies that do vintage restorations might be interested in the equipment.

        There are some good mancave stuff in those pics, if nobody wants to refurbish them.
