Sometimes walking into a bowling alley feels like stepping back in time to post-WWII Southern California, and there's a good reason for that. See photographs, drawings and pieces from some of California's glitziest (and gaudiest) bowling alleys from the mid-1950's and 60's—a time when one in four Americans identified as bowlers—at the A+D Museum for one month only.
