Photo A Day: Not Quite Urban Decay 2, Milton PA

In honor of getting a new camera and needing a reason to play with it…welcome to my Photo A Day! Topic: Whatever strikes my fancy. Frequency: Daily-ish. I hope.

From what I understand, this sad little building was indeed a restaurant dive bar called “The 10th Frame”, which seems a little shortsighted. An example: Aren’t golf-related bars often called something like, “The 19th Hole”, because you go there after you play the 18th? Maybe they should have named this bowling-friendly joint “The 11th Frame”, since the 10th is taken care of inside the actual bowling alley. Not that it would have guaranteed the restaurant a greater degree of success, but it would have made more sense and given me less to snark about.

Here’s a shot looking into the building through one of the many broken windows, showing its current use as storage for Imperial Lanes*. The metal things stacked against the wall are the pin-grabby-reset thingies that bowling alleys use to take up the pins that are still standing so the sweeper arm can then clear the lane.


I can’t speak to what’s in the piled garbage bags. Let’s assume it’s decorations and not, you know, the hopes and dreams of bowlers from decades past.

*I assume it’s for Imperial Lanes, located directly across the street. I can’t imagine that a competing bowling alley would store their extra pin-grabby-thingies there. If so, then the competing lane owner is the undisputed king  or queen of throwing bowling alley shade. But I digress.
