My high school friend, Bill, just sent me a link to a YouTube video about Playland at the Beach in San Francisco, circa 1960. I am glad these memories are preserved. This local amusement park closed in 1972.
Anyone who wants to know more can join the folks of the San Francisco History Association for their Tuesday, August 30 meeting in The City. James Smith, author of Playland at the Beach the Early Years, will be the guest speaker. The monthly meetings are free to members. Nonmembers can attend and pay $5 at the door.
