A Plea to the Owner of 229 Smith, aka Golden Eagle Alleys

A week ago, a commenter named "Landlord" responded to my post about the history of 229 Smith, in which I pointed out its colorful past history as the Golden Eagle Alleys. I assumed the bowling lanes were long gone. But Landlord said: "Actually, the remains of the two lanes still in the basement."

Landlord, I don't know how to get ahold of you, but I beseech you: please contact me at lostcitybrooks@gmail.com. I mean no mischief. I am just a curious history cat and I really want to see those old, 19th-century bowling lanes before they disappear for ever. I'll take up only 10 minutes of your time.
