The San Franciscans: Diana Scott and Joel Schechter
Sunset District residents Diana Scott and Joel Schechter are the husband-and-wife team that founded the Ocean Beach Historical Society to preserve the legacy of San Francisco's historic oceanside amusement sites and the culture of Playland. Few remnants of Playland remain, and some of those that have survived were moved from their original locations. The focus of Scott and Schechter's recent efforts has been the beloved Doggie Dinner mascot. Diana says, "Our mission is to keep the landmarks on the land they mark!"
