Nostalgia: South Bay bathing pool

editorial image

A view of Scarborough South Bay and bathing pool which opened in 1915. The outer concrete sea wall was wide enough to serve as a promenade for bathers and a viewing grand-stand for spectators.

On the landward side there was another concrete public walkway 25 feet wide over a subway which led from the dressing rooms to the open pool.
