Newark Recreation Bowling Club: circa 1900

Newark Recreation Bowling Club. Organized 1882. Banquet and Annual Meeting held about 1900. They met at Montgomery's Alleys, at 71 Clinton St. [Page from Newark, New Jersey's Greatest Manufacturing Centre, Illustrated, Published by The Consolidate Illustrating Co., Newark, NJ, 1894.] I could have cropped off the ceiling to bring the men onto the screen, but I thought the circa 1900 electric ceiling light to be worth seeing.
