Seashore & Mountain Resorts of the PNW

Dated 1917, this booklet is similar to one we have seen from 1923 and not quite so similar to one from 1935. Although this booklet has a color cover, while the 1923 booklet is sepia, many of the graphics in the two booklets are similar. However, the text, while following the same outline, is completely different.

Although the cover seems to give equal attention to the seashore and the mountains, the interior devotes eight pages to the coast and just three to the mountains (and one of those is to areas in the Columbia River Gorge, which is arguably not the mountains). There is also a page on the Willamette Valley that mentions some mountain resorts accessible from the valley. However, it is clear that the SP&S considered Clatsop Beach to hold the same significance for it as Glacier Park held for parent Great Northern.
