Smelling the early 60s

I have been smelling delightful aroma of the early 1960s. Possibly the late 1950s.

This happens whenever I go to the bowling alley.

You, too can experience this.
  1. Visit one of the many US bowling alleys that was built during the era above, and still has the vintage Jetsons-style ball-return equipment.
  2. Stand just above the place where the ball comes out (where the little conveyor belt carries it up from below), and take a whiff of the air coming out.
  3. You will catch the delightful odor of woodwork, machinery, and oil that has been in place down there since that time.
