The Weekly Gewgaw - Japanese Deer Park Flip Calendar

The Japanese Deer Park was a theme park in Buena Park, and we use to go there when I was a kid. It had pearl divers, a lake, swans, parrots, seals (or sea lions), tea house, karate demonstrations, and of course, deer you could feed. It closed sometime during the 1970s.

The little device is also known as a perpetual calendar. The way it works is you turn or flip the large round section and the next metal number falls down. You just have to remember to flip it everyday, which I don't. This is one of about three that I have.
