Bowling Lanes

This ghost sign is an interesting one. It's located behind Crown City Loan & Jewelry in Old Town Pasadena. If you go to 65 E. Colorado Blvd where the shop is, go north on Raymond behind the building, into the alley. The faded paint on the rear wall is rumored to be leftover set dressing from the 1973 film "The Sting." Many scenes were shot in Old Town, which was really run down at the time. I should rent the movie and see if this sign is visible in a scene. If anyone can validate this, please let me know.
