Administrative history

Acomb Bowling Club was established in the early twentieth century. Despite enduring popularity for decades, by 2018 it had only 11 active members and its Front Street bowling green site was sold to City of York Council for use for housing, subject to a £20 000 donation towards bowling club facilities at York RI Bowling Club.

Scope and content

At present this collection only comprises four photographs of various teams and, in some cases, their families. Due to the very poor condition of the photographs and mounting boards, these photographs cannot be produced and will require conservation work.
