Besides having a phletora of photos and information about coaster designers, Cartmell's book also offers thorough listings of coasters that were built by various designers for specific parks in their perspective years. Some of these include parks that operated in the Pacific Northwest such as John Miller's Jack Rabbit at Natatorium Park in Spokane, Washington, Carl Phare's Dipper and the Whirwind Racer kiddie coaster at Jantzen Beach in Portland, Oregon, Harry Traver's, Zip coaster at Oaks in Portland, Prior and Church's Dipper at Hastings Park (Happyland) in Vancouver, BC, and the Dipper coaster at Playland in Bitter Lake, Seattle, Washington which was reportedly the longest coaster at 4,000 ft. and cost $75,000.
This book also offers photos of Seattle's Luna Park, Portland's Oaks Park, Bellingham's White City, and Portland's Council Crest. In fact this is the book where I learned much about the existence of some of our Northwest parks and their coasters.
