The cover image shows Roslyn, circa 1940. By the 1930s Roslyn's business district (left) was providing services for few people as coal mining operations decreased. Located above Roslyn, the Immaculate Conception Catholic Church (center) was built in 1887. Cle Elum Ridge is visible in the background, north of Roslyn.
