Thank you very much for posting this. As a 9 year old in 1960 I moved (with family, of course) from NJ to Los Altos/Mountain View on the Peninsula, and a couple years later my cousins moved from Long Island to San Francisco, near Golden Gate Park. When we'd go up to visit, the four of us kids would go to Sutro's and Playland -- what parents today would let kids 10 and 11 wander around the City alone these days? I loved the Fun House - the wooden slide with burlap sacks to sit on, or the rotating table you'd sit on and try to stay on as it accelerated. I know that all things must pass, but it saddens me that the kind of innocent fun we had then seems gone these days.
