"Montclair's Bowlium Lanes opened in 1958 at 4666 Holt Blvd., just west of Monte Vista Avenue, and the oldest surviving bowling alley in the Inland Valley is still setting 'em up.
The 32-lane bowling center recently gained a new, snazzier sign (see above). It's a far cry from the astonishing sign (see below) that lured motorists from 1958 until its demolition in 1999, but it's better than the two bland monument signs that filled in in the interim."
