Union candlepin bowling men's league, Biddeford, ca. 1955


Candlepin bowling was popular among the Pepperell Mill textile workers in the mid 1950s and 1960s.

The local union of the Textile Workers Union of America (TWUA-CIO) sponsored both men's and women's leagues. They bowled at the Pastime Lanes, located on Main Street in Biddeford and at 20th Century Lane on Franklin Street in Biddeford.
