Behind Cliff House is Camera Obscura , built in 1948-49 as part of the Playland at the Beach amusement area. The small building is decorated to look like a giant 35mm camera with its lens pointing to the sky. Inside, the Victorian invention (based on a 15th century design by Leonardo da Vinci) produces 360 degree 'projections' of the Seal Rock Area.
