Actually that's a compliment! Allow me to explain...
Snooker is a variation of what is better known as pool or biliards. Back in the Old Days, it was a pretty popular game, and every saloon (and there were a bunch of 'em in the old 'hood) had its own pool table. Accordingly, snooker balls were in high demand and just about any outfit that could make them did, along with whatever else they made. So - according to my Grammy Kozlowski, God rest her soul - if you threw 'snooker ball factory' onto the end of a list of things an outfit made, you were saying they could make just about anything.
Okay - sending out a few emails at this moment - got one with the pics from the Region 12 show, and one with the Boston pics!
