More Nixon bowling! I always thought that Nixon had a bowling alley installed in the White House and that was where the pictures were taken. Apparently, however, the bowling alley is in the Executive Office Building. This is clearly where the other Nixon photo used as an icon for THE SYNDICATE comes from too. Several sites claim that a private bowling alley exists in the White House, but a Smithsonian site states that the alley that Truman had installed was dismantled. No official sites proclaim the White House alley's existence. There is an obscure reference to the Bush twins ordering sandwiches for the bowling alley when their grand father was president. If that alley is in the Executive Office building, it would make more sense why then First Lady Barbara Bush would have objected to the request.
Ultimately I refuse to believe that a bowling alley is tucked away somewhere in the White House. It is a fine fantasy to hold, but a fantasy at that.
