Ten Pin Bowling 1962

In 1962, Merseyside’s first ten pin bowling alley was opened at the Teubrook Bowl.

It was a purpose built extension to the ABC Cinema, constructed on stilts above a car park.

Film starlets Kim Tracey, Pauline Shepherd and Dorinda Stevens enjoyed a game under the supervision of instructors, while an attendant in an upstairs office informed customers over the tannoy when their time was up.

At Tuebrook, Dr. Fitzpatrick, one of the churchwardens, made a long statement with regard to the pew system at St. John’s church, which, he alleged, was working a great amount of mischief to the parish.


The Vicar, the Rev. J. C. Reade, has been in ill-health a long time, and he had not preached or read the lessons for two years and a half. Dr. Fitzpatrick concluded a very able speech by calling upon the Vicar to resign.

I love learning about history, and for the past 30 years have enjoyed books, films, and documentaries on the topic. On days off from work my favourite destination with friends and family are museums, historic buildings, and archaeological sites, or just walking around interesting streets with old buildings to admire.
