Bowl-O-Rama: Friendly Hills Bowl
Do you ever just drive around looking at/for cool signs? I'm pretty sure that every region of the United States still offers an abundance of interesting signage to inspire the natural marketer/advertiser in all of us - if we just keep our eyes open. Many times my eyes are so wide open looking for cool signs that I miss what is happening on the road. As we have discovered, some of the best vintage signs are to be found at bowling alleys and we were certainly not disappointed by the towering, skewered diamonds of Friendly Hills Bowl in Whittier, CA

Like many of the bowling alleys around Southern California, Friendly Hills Bowl is a relic of Jet Age optimism and architecture. The roof line looks like a jet taking flight while the structure is grounded by the weight of stacked stones; this juxtaposition of ultra modern angles and stone age materials always lends a dissonance that I find both confusing and thrilling.

I'm telling you, it's all about mid-Century optimism.
I've always heard that a person whose writing angles upward,
is a natural optimist. Here, the script of the bowling alley's sign
follows the ascending flight path of the roof line, followed
by the diamonds repeated from the larger sign.

So a cocktail tray, a trifle bowl, a coffee carafe and a martini
glass walk into a bowling alley; they start to juggle and...
I'm not exactly sure what this mural at the entrance to the bowling
alley signifies, but please write me a hilarious joke that
ends with the punchline, "Those aren't bowling balls!".

Anywhere we go, I'm always interested in light fixtures,
but the more interesting part to me was the muted violet color
that predominated the color scheme of this and the last bowling
alley we featured (owned by two different companies). Is there
some psychological effect that shades of purple have on bowlers?
Eat more? Drink more? Bowl a few more frames?
