Yep I remember that, swim all day for 50 cents!
I’m sure I didn’t get it from the BHB. Nor this one: https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/caacdc319dedbe8c539a2c4dd0ae79e44538ae8fdb33542feb51cdf515aceca3.jpg
I don’t know if my father knew that. But, I’m confident my mother didn’t know — because she didn’t stop us from going.
Of course, I swam there in the late 60s — it was the Brooklyn Poly pool (sort of, Poly had swimming classes there) and I remember the smell of chlorine.
That said, I didn’t remember that it was salt water either as a child or as a college student.
Forgive me if this is well known or repetitive. It says a new pool was build over the old one, which is still there. Didn’t notice when that happened.
This is the type of machine I alluded to:
My husband and I really like Dr Trachtenberg on Lawrence st by metro tech . No frills office but he’s good.
More like the State, I’d say. Loving authority’s the key.
It’s the original pool but greatly reduced in size.
I read somewhere that there once was a Yahoo group for people to reminisce and share pictures of the St. George. Did anyone archive the content before Yahoo Groups shutdown? If so, can you share it?
I was a member briefly, but it was ruled with an iron hand by someone who acted as gatekeeper, so people couldn’t communicate directly.
