The Bowling Alley, revisited (1 of 2)

I've blogged about our vintage Bowling Alley in a previous post, but it deserves to be revisited. It is truly an architectural "tour de force," an authentic Swiss chalet with all the trimmings, reinterpreted as a bowling alley by architect James E. Ware for 19th Century millionaire Chas. F. Dieterich. The first view is from the driveway in front of the house. The next shows the stairs to the terrace above. Image 3 is a detail of the balcony that runs around 2 sides of the second floor. The 4th image shows the house as seen from the terrace. And finally, guess when it was built?
