Subject notes
In other photographs, a chute appears beside the diving platform. The dangers which led such platforms to be removed from pools can be seen. Before the cubicles were opened in 1932, old railway carriages were used for changing. An indoor pool was opened in 1971 and the outdoor pool was demolished the following year.
