Junior has allowed me to take possession of these photos from either a tournament or exhibition on Nov. 1, 1964. The bowlers in these have been identified as PBA Hall of Famer Harry “The Tiger” Smith and Roy Lown (the latter the lefty, who won the PBA’S first televised finals in 1961).
The originals will be donated to the Downtown Brockton Museum.
I started "The Tenth Board" to chronicle my experiences during the road back to league bowling after my heel fractures in 1999 (it took me 7 years before I started thinking seriously about it). I now use the blog as a combination of a personal bowling journal and a news site mostly about Westgate Lanes (Brockton, MA) and its bowlers.
