The first bowling alley in Howard is pictured in this photograph. Two bowling lanes are pictured, with two men in the shadows behind the pins in each lane. The décor suggests a patriotic theme, with the display of four flags and bunting with a star design. Three handwritten signs are posted prominently: "No Swearing or Betting"; "Ladies are Welcome at Anytime"; and, "No Gentleman Will Spit on the Floor." As noted in the caption inscribed on the photo, the business was owned by L.F. Roberts.

Date: Between 1900 and 1910
