Looks like the springboard is missing, I was a regular there in the 60s and remember the raft but it didn’t have what look like benches on it then, just a diving board that you climbed up and a few steps to. So I’d say this was the 40s/50s.


The pool was just called Bathing Pool. It was written on the white wall seen from the Queens Hotel end of the prom.
I remember the raft a lot nearer to the middle of the pool, used to swim out to it all the time. A season ticket made sure our summer was always spent swimming!
