Eduardo Uranga, Jr. found these two photos of a championship bowling team from Avalos around the 1970s. Since the bowling alley was a manual operation, the action was in the little room at the bottom of the alley. The bowling balls were sent with some force up to the bowler by hand. The pins were collected and placed on trays shaped like a triangle then put in place for the bowlers. With great force, the bowlers threw their bowling balls down the lane. This was done about 20 times per game. Each game cost about $.50 and was excellent exercise!

Here is a little bowling history from Chihuahua I found on the internet:

Included in these photos are Eduardo’s brother George, Cecy and their dear friend Chacha. Eduardo does not know the name of the older gentleman. Thank you for sharing these Eduardo!
