1970s Golden West Leaves the Island

Oct 8, 2012

This Golden West slate pool table circa the 1970s had been located in Balboa, CA. It’s now heading inland to an Irvine, CA office building. This pool table was built back when billiard mechanics were macho men and three-piece slate pool tables were for sissies. Yes, that’s right the pool table king has come across yet another one-piece slate pool table. Not quite a “Widowmaker”, but it was still a challenge maneuvering this seven-footer downstairs and into my van. Everything went smoothly, no hernias, no holes in any walls just the way it should be. At least we had gravity working in our favor. The client had just moved into the Balboa home and decided to give the pool table away to a friend for use in her English language learning school.
