flic.kr/p/4TBdoJ | IL-Alton-Bowl Haven '65 | <b>Bowl Haven</b> Alton, IL This Kennedy-era bowling alley is still in business, but it's been remodeled plenty. The above ad is from the 1965 Alton High School <i>Tatler</i> yearbook.

flic.kr/p/4TGqoY | IL-Alton-Downtown scene '64 | <b>No, Alton High School <i>Tatler</i>; thank <i>you!</i></b>

flic.kr/p/4TGgiN | IL-Alton-Blocks '63 day | <b>Blocks Drive-In</b> Alton, IL At this time, there were two Blocks locations: 701 Central Av. and 2300 Godfrey Rd. (A third was added later.) They were all very similar architecturally, at least in the walk-up area, and I can't tell which location is pictured here. The Godfrey location was in business until nearly the turn of the century, but I never got around to eating there. It was torn down to build a Kentucky Fried Chicken. From an ad in the 1963 AHS yearbook.
