Often incorrectly referred to as "Laughing" Sal, this Sal came from The Funhouse at San Francisco's Playland at the Beach. She was built by the Philadelphia Toboggan Company of Germantown, PA in the early 1930's out of paper mache, springs, gears, and cams. Laffing Sal and her partner Laffing Sam were a part of almost every funhouse across the United States in the 1930's and 40's
