    Wonder Bowl Anaheim, 1959
    upload_2017-8-21_7-53-52.png Anaheim Historical Society
    Hello,

    The Wonder Bowl was located on Katella Avenue in Anaheim, CA. The bowling alley was bought by Disneyland in 1985 and turned it into a storage facility for the park’s decorations and entertainment props. Disney demolished the Wonder Bowl facility to create another parking lot. Late 50’s architecture so popular in So Cal. Much like the drive in theaters scattered all over So Cal, land values rose and the property was torn down to make way for more profitable ventures.

    We were bowling fanatics up to senior year in high school. It did not hurt to live three blocks from a bowling alley near our Westside Long Beach house. (Sante Fe Bowl…before bowling, it was a neighborhood movie theater) On the way to school and back, this was a pit stop for a Cherry Coke and a couple of games of bowling. We started to get good at bowling. By the time we were in cars, we started to go all over to bowl at different places, Kona Lanes in Costa Mesa, Java Lanes in Signal Hill, Red Fox Lanes in North Long Beach, Major Bowl on Anaheim St.(near our church) Circle Bowl on the Traffic Circle, and the Boulevard Bowl on LB Blvd.

    There were so many choices of bowling alleys back then, but they all came down later due to rising land costs and business profitability. We were such fanatics that we sneaked out of Sunday services to walk down the street to bowl a few games until our ride home came outside at the end of the service.

    I drove by a place in Costa Mesa, recently, that had mini lanes in a shopping center. It is one of the newest bowling alleys in the area. Daytime/Nightime bowling…a new concept. You drive by in the day...you can see people bowling. But, at night, that whole, long, glass window is lit up like a 60's head shop...that is a cool concept.

  6. It's a '40 alright, with the deluxe front bumper. Looks like a small town somewhere in Australia. The body companies in Australia...(Holden, TJ Richards, and more...made many different bodies for the Willys than were ever made here).
    There is an early Willys Phaeton in our area, what a neat looking Willys. G-willys !
