Retro Independence Bowling alleys


Strike n Spare, Sterling Lanes and the Diamond Bowl are all a part of my childhood. The signs are the same but not the interiors, alas, they are very different. Some things, however, remain, the lockers, the Verona Room bar sign, and the cigarette and candy machines.
The Diamond Bowl was refurbished into a retro dream! I remember going there with my parents when I was very young, and even the first location that was later torn down. There was a movie theater, The Granada. that has also been torn down. My sister, cousins and I would see movies such as the Three Stooges, "Around the World in a Daze".  The new location has an awesome bar and snack bar, leather pastel couches and pictures of Harry Truman bowling on the walls. Glad the McClain family has moved in to make the Independence square a cool and "shoppable" place again!
