I was looking for some vintage pictures of our cool bowling venue and I found these not so vintage pictures at agilitynut.com

Do you think that this would qualify as Googie? It is rather late... sometime in the sixties.

Alan Hess where are you?

That tower reminds me of Frank Lloyd Wright's commercial complex in Beverly Hills: the Anderton Court Shops (333 N. Rodeo Drive). Circa 1950?

I always thought it was like the Marin Civic Center tower as well, with shades of Taliesen West thrown in.

I am not too thrilled with the beams that have been wrapped in plywood siding.

This the original rendering, circa 1965, done for the architect and showing the building with the ice skating rink addition that is the building we know today.
