Portobello  Bathing Pool

The Pool

Portobello Bathing Pool (or Open Air Swimming Pool) opened in 1936.

There seems to  have been a good audience here, as the diver dived from the high board.

The Postcard

This postcard by Valentine has not been sent through the post.  This postcard is numbered A3769.  This means that the photograph was taken in 1936,  the year that the pool opened.

Here are more photos of the pool, also by Valentine, taken in 1936:
