“Women Bowling,” ca. 1900. William M. Vander Weyde captures a bowling game between two women around the turn of the century. To some, the women seem to emit an eerie glow. Everything else in the black and white photograph is in stark focus the women are not, giving them an ethereal quality. Did Weyde plan the photo shot on a staged set or are these merely candid shots of friendly game in a dark and wooden bowling aisle? But, more importantly, did you notice there are only two finger holes?! I can barely bowl with the three finger holes that modern bowling balls now have…and by barely, I mean not at all.
