SLIDE OF THE WEEK

Bowling? 1953

This is an action shot!

With a short-stepping start to harmonize might, balance and aim, a gent blurrily hurls a heavy three-holed, big melon-sized ball down a hardwood lane. His hopes are high to send a set of pins into a spinning splat. His attentive teammate audience of two share his chartreuse shirt, styled and named for the sport they are playing.

Little do these bowlers know that their ball and pin sport is about to get a mid-century modern makeover. New automatic pin spotters and deluxe Googie space age style will sanitize the sport, make it sparkle and send it into the stratosphere of suburbia where it will become a favorite good-time grownup pastime.

But why, I wonder, is bowling called BOWLing when there are no bowls involved. Shouldn’t it be called BALLing?

Here’s to bowling and BALLing!

SLIDE OF THE WEEK

Steak Lady

A woman posing proudly with a fatty porterhouse steak, loosely wrapped in plastic, is letting all of the cold air out of the hardest working appliance in the house – it never stops! Between the big slab of meat, wheel of cheese, two jars of mayonnaise, bottle of mystery sauce, single tomato, bag of carrots, can of apple juice and quart of Borden’s homogenized milk the food pyramid is well represented here. A refrigerator’s job is simple – to preserve food. General Electric introduced the first in 1939.

SLIDE OF THE WEEK

It is thanks to the Mid-Continent Supply Company of Fort Worth that we have the largest freestanding statue in the world, the "Golden Driller." They first introduced the 76 foot giant at Tulsa’s annual International Petroleum Exposition in 1953. In 1959 he was temporarily displayed again for the show. But it wasn’t until 1966, after he was slightly remolded –he no longer looks like a giant academy award wearing a hard hat saying "how sweet it is," that he was permanently posed in Tulsa at 21st Street and Pittsburg Avenue.
