The Bowling Alley on Bearskin Neck, c. 1938

Rockport Harbor Scene

A recent posting here show a view across T-Wharf towards Bearskin Neck and the building that once was adjacent to (or part of) Waddell’s boat yard. Someone posted a comment asking if it was true that the building once housed a bowling alley.

It is true, and in the photo above you can see the word “Bowling” painted along the side of the building, which stands near the foot of Bearskin Neck. This photo is from the Boston Public Library collection and is estimated to be from around 1938.
