I thought I'd add some more variety to my Classic Coaster Postcards page so
with the large selection of pictures I've obtained through research, I'll be
adding some "non" postcard views of defunct coasters. The first one is the
notorious Cyclone at Puritas Spring Park near Cleveland, Ohio. I scanned this
several different ways and this one had the best quality while not perfect.
Most the coaster was hidden in the ravine but you can certainly make out most
of it.

There was an old gentleman, now passed away who had a tremendous collection of
Puritas Springs Cyclone pictures. His name was Allan Hehr and he was one of the
authors of the Euclid Beach Books, I was at a talk he was giving once and he
had a slide show, many pics where of the Cyclone. The predominate color of the
coaster was Red and White as I recall, kind of candy stripe ish.
I remember he also showed live footage of the Altoona Leap the Dips, and Racing
Whippets, which he considered a personal favorite. I hope this great stuff
wasnt buried with him. I live near the Puritas Cyclone and some wreckage still
remains in the ravine, I have a couple pieces in my garage.
