Description Cast Zinc head from Play Land by the Beach amusement park in San Francisco. The head has holes in the eyes, the nose and top of the head to squirt water. There is a threaded hole in the back where a water pipe or hose was attached. It was probably used in the Fun House. It is now mounted on a wood base. I have not seen another example of the amusement park art. ex. Peter Brams collection
