  • Historic San Francisco Amusement Parks

    Came across some pics of long gone San Francisco amusement parks dating back to the 1800s. Second link is specific to Playland at The Beach, owned by the Whitney brothers. George Whitney was the only early Imagineer to have any park experience and was DL's Director of Ride Operations until 1958.

      I knew about Playland and Sutro Baths have good DVDs about both, but those earlier ones were news to me. The ruins of Sutro Baths are still below the Cliff House, and I've spent many hours there day and night, so the history of that area has fascinated me since I moved out here 30+ years ago. Credit my sister for sending me the original link.

          How fun to read about SF's Laughing Sal. My home amusement park (Myers Lake Park, also now gone) had an Old King Cole Laughing Sal as well. Our Sal lives in a local museum, still laughing for the crowds. Thanks for a look at her twin!
