HerbertSchmeckForgottenLegacy[Book: Torrence Jenkins Jr. – 2006 – 20x26cm – 162 Pages – Many B&W and colour photos]. Herbert Paul Schmeck (1890-1956) fundamentally represented Philadelphia Toboggan Company (PTC) from the year 1922 to 1954. The talent and diversity this man possessed was evident in the designs that came off his drafting table, his flawless roller coaster designs made amusement park patrons laugh and scream themselves silly throughout sixty seconds of controlled fear. Chapter Points: Foreword (By Thomas D. Rebbie); The Apprentice Who Catapulted PTC’s Business; Growth and Record Profits at PTC; Innovation During the Depression; World War II and Post War Coasters. ANDY SHINE’S RATING: Excellent / Recommended.
