I was under the impression that he was in charge of the whole place....My book is about growing up in the 60-70's in San Francisco and one of the chapters is dedicated to Playland....My mom worked at Lefty's bar(not Lefty O'Douls) which I am having trouble finding info on..Located on O'Farrell/Powell.It was the early 60's. She met this person at Lefty's and almost married him . I remember going to Playland with him and riding the rides for free and introducing us to people that worked for him..He was pretty well connected in SF at that time. It was probably 1964-1965...Thank you
