Splashing good fun at open-air swimming pool

TAKEN in 1946, this photo shows the outdoor swimming pool on the seafront at Weston-super-Mare.
My father, who had spent five years in Africa serving in the war, took me there for a treat.
My mother took the snapshot with a 2A Brownie, one of the box cameras which were very popular at that time.
It seems a shame that families today are deprived of the use of the outdoor pool – it was such a popular venue.
There were very often diving displays when the diving board was extended.
