we went to a fantastically retro bowling alley today.  apparently this is the more modern one of our two nearest.  i’m sure i remember this machine from trips bowling in nottingham from when i was a lad

the shoes certainly looked like they’ve seen a few years of action

and there were plaques all over the place celebrating big achievements on the different lanes.  this one showed the first time someone had scored over 300 on lanes 15 and 16.

the machines looked modern in a retro calculator sort of way

you could image people playing the original space invaders game in the background loving all the new technology
