Calling all Baby Boomers and fans of nostalgia! Who remembers “Laughing Sal” at San Francisco’s Playland at the Beach? The roller coaster. Cotton candy. Pinball machines.
All gone now. Condos and townhouses occupy the space where the screams of riders on the Alpine Racer and the bumper cars used to pierce the salty air.
No more carousal, only the music of foghorns, and the crash of waves beyond the seawall.
Want to relive some of those days? Raymond Sheets and Melon will take you back, as will Alice Derry and her motorcycle. Catch it all as you turn the pages of I Want to Walk You Home which will be published before the year’s end.
Thanks for visiting!
