It's unique facade had the prow of a ship with its mainsail set over the entrance. On either side of the doorway were lighthouse towers supported by mermaids. Visitors used a pole and line to try and catch mechanical tin fish. The fish were numbered. If you caught a lucky fish you won a prize up to $250.
