1924 Border Cities Bowling Champs

Here’s an oldie from my personal collection. Maybe you’ll spot a relative in here… 🙂

I’m not sure what kind of league this was, if the bowlers were recreational or business related. The one man who’s estate this photo was contain in, passed in the late 1970’s. Charles Kirkwood was an employee of the Toledo Scale Company of Canada (an American by birth) and a US Army veteran of WWI.

The people in the photograph are from Left to Right:

Tom McKnight, Jim Watson, “Slim” Carnegie, Fred Knight, E. Prudhomme (spare), & Charles Kirkwood.

Must be somebody’s Grandfather or Great-Great Grandfather…
