Right Up Our Alley

The American Sign Museum restored a neon bowling sign.
Ten Pin Bowl

The American Sign Museum (Cincinnati) typically says, “Thanks, but no thanks” to restoring signs outside of its collection, but recently made an exception. Operating in collaboration with Neonworks of Cincinnati, the museum restored a porcelain-enamel neon sign originally made in 1955 for Ten Pin Bowl in Carlyle, IL. The restoration included new neon, new transformers and a re-wiring of one side of the sign, which will be installed against an interior wall at Ten Pin Alley, an entertainment complex in Columbus, OH.
