One of the childhood delights of riding down Airline Highway to the Orleans parish line after dark was viewing O’Shaughnessy’s fantastic neon sign depicting a bowler in action, perpetually scoring a strike. The bowling center at 101 Airline offered 40 air conditioned alleys as well as billiard tables, food, and drink and an automobile service station. This photograph (at http://websitesneworleans.com/metairie/id18.html) was taken in 1957. The property is now the location of a bottled water company. (Courtesy of the Jefferson Parish Yearly Review.)

Since that was written the bottled water company is no longer there.
