The amusement park featured is Pickering's Pleasure Pier / Ocean Park, Santa Monica, California, one of a few that existed on and nearby the property. It burned down in 1924. The most famous and popular, Pacific Ocean Park, or P.O.P., was eventually built on the site and opened in July 1958. It closed in 1967, and was demolished in the winter of 1974. Nothing remains other than a few underwater supports. The current Ocean Park on Santa Monica Pier is in a different location than Pickering's.
