View of the northeast section of Playland under a cloud-filled sky showing the back of the Circus (later called the Fun House, or funhouse), which has a sign that says, "EUROPEAN ONE RING CIRCUS." Also visible are the towers of Bluebeard's Palace (later the Magic Carpet) and a ticket booth, or kiosk, for the Motor Speedway which has a sign that says, "SPEEDWAY," and is part of a building that has murals with whimsical illustrations of swans and boats. Another ticket booth has a sign that appears to have Japanese or Chinese characters on it. People along a fence seem to be watching the Speedway ride.
