"Edinburgh's biggest swimming pool, until the
Commonwealth Pool was built in 1970. Portobello Pool was only open
in the summer months. The first person to enter the water each season was
given a free pass for the rest of the season.
The water was fifteen feet deep under the high
diving board. We were scared to swim over it as kids."
