Skywatch Friday: fine weather for bowling

On Beacon Street just south of the Lake. This area is full of lovely, old apartment buildings from the 20s and 30s.  This apartment sign meant something special to the landlord, but the meaning is now lost.  I love old cast iron figures.  You can see behind the bowler that the sun is shining.  The fair weather has returned just in time for the Oakland Marathon on Sunday.

  1. What a beautiful blue sky....and the bowler is just an add bonus!

  2. So there's no bowling alley here, just the cool sign on the apartment building? What a great idea.

  3. It would be interesting to learn the story behind this.

    Nice capture of the blue sky - another fine contrast shot like the one with the church on Grand Avenue.

  4. This is a great shot. I love cast iron and I LOVE bowling...nice.
