Hap Morse Bowling Alley

"Bowling for Health". Bowling was big in the thirties, forties, and fifties. Many businesses in cities throughout the U.S. sponsored bowling teams. "Southwest's Finest", 1407 Ross Avenue. Hap Morse was a famous bowler; that's all I know about him. In 1938 there were two Hap Morse Bowling Alleys in Dallas, this one and another at 1507 Young Street. In 1957 only the one on Young Street remained under this name.

  1. I found a old "Hap Morse Bowling Alleys, Inc." key chain. It shows a ball hitting pins. You can turn it and it shows a man throwing a ball then it shows the ball hitting the pins.
