i remember P;ayland very well...i can't believe i'm not the only one! went there in the fifties and remember the fun house with the laughing maniquin in the window and all the crazy rides there...I also recall sutro baths and went swimming there once and skating a few times....next thing i knew it was all gone. Vietnam war came and i went to Canada. I return periodically and always visit that place i've even taken my children the the zoo and i have one photo of fleishackers pool empty before it was demolished!
