At Westrich Photography, photographers create a clean, classic look while framing memorable moments and graduation portraits. They capture the personality of brides and grooms, kids and teens, or groups of pets sneaking into corporate functions in crisp black and white or rich colors. Before taking photos, staff consults with clients first to work out a location and clothes for the shoot.
Towering alongside Clayton Road, the Tropicana Lanes sign has a vintage, weather-beaten look acquired after more than 50 years of welcoming visitors. Three generations of Richmond Heights bowlers have ventured into the facility during this time, scattering pins across the same 52 lanes that have hosted the nationally televised Professional Bowlers Tour. Owner and PBA Hall of Fame inductee Ray Bluth oversees the day-to-day operations of the alley—which, despite its retro disposition, sports modern extras such as automatic scoring and singing shoelaces. Between frames, bowlers can kick back inside the cocktail lounge, play pool in the game room, or munch on wings, nachos, and hot dogs from the snack bar.
