Newspaper article in the Daily Sketch: 'Penzance Swimmers Want a Pool - New Scheme Opposed'. In the top right and bottom left corners of this page are images of Battery Rocks, the site where Jubilee Bathing Pool was later built. The high diving board shown in the lower image supports reports that this site was a very popular bathing spot since before the pool was built.
