Fruitvale Hall

This deco era building is tucked between International Blvd. and the Fruitvale BART station.  I don't know who plays bingo here or when.  Bingo isn't my game but I wouldn't mind visiting to see if there are any deco flourishes left inside.
(One of these days I need to learn to pay attention to flare).


  1. I follow another blog where she has gone inside bingo parlors and took pictures of those playing bingo. Great stuff as bingo really draws in some characters.

  2. Gorgeous old Deco building, I too would love to go inside, sadly, bet it was gutted long ago and probably looks like all you would expect in a bingo parlor.

  3. I am glad that the building itself has been preserved. We have a similar vintage building in Mobile and it is an antiques/bric-a-brac shop.


  4. Nice to see this so well cared for.

  5. Ah, wonderful building and great find. Agree, it would be worth a bingo game to see the inside!
