The Panorama Lanes bowling alley in Belleville, IL is now Bel-Air Bowl. There was another Bel-Air Bowling Lanes on the other side of town which closed and moved in place of the Panorama Bowl. They remodeled the neon sign which brought it back to life but in my opinion it is not quite as nice. More info can be found at http://www.belairbowl.com/. 10-07

Hazelwood, MO was once home to this bowling alley sign near 270 and 67 called Lucky Strike Bowl. It was built in 1958, then remodeled to mixed use commercial in 2003.

The bowling alley is no longer there. The building has been subdivided and is still there minus the great sign. It was owned in part by one of the owners of Tropicana Lanes in Clayton, MO. The sign was huge at 24'X16', and was visible from the highway in both directions. 11-09
