Bowling Club, 1962

“Members of the Fifty and Over Bowling Club cheer as team member Ann Queen makes her strike.” So read the caption in the Herald Examiner newspaper when this photo as published in 1962.  There’s lots to see here.  The women still wore the short hair styles of the fifties–no Kennedy bouffants for them.  Ms. Queen dressed in pants, with bowling shoes, just the outfit to make a strike.  However the woman standing to the right of her appears to have on a skirt, although it’s hard to see.  Was she even a member? Her shirt looks to be a different cut and color. Too bad we have no indication of what the other woman member was wearing aside from the club logo.

And for all of you vintage collectors–I’d give a lot for one of those shirts.
