Holiday Lanes
Bossier City, LA
The Holiday Lanes was built in 1960 as the Holiday Bowl. It is still in operation. There was a Roto-Sphere sign with bowling pin arms and a black bowling ball sphere at the center. The sign was installed on a sixty foot tall pole. It was designed and built by Warren Milks who invented and produced Roto-Spheres. Two others Roto-Spheres with bowling pins were built but all three are gone now. At some point, the one in Bossier City was replaced with the the sign shown above with the new name. [map]
