  1. Jim … That is a nice painting of the Playland Pool … view is looking south; the hills of Longstown are off center to the left. Definitely remember going down the big slide … from the top one could look into the pool and see the nearby big sea-horse painted on the bottom … Cliff Satterthwaite even captured this underwater detail!
