1961 - The pool at that time was simply a hole in the ground with no tiles or slabs on the sides or the floor. That came the following year; we used to swim amongst the fishes, eels and amphibians.
In the summer, those who could, took part in a mile swim .. something like eighty lengths if I remember correctly. In 1962 under the direction of John Corcoran we installed slabs to the bottom, and concreted the sides of the pool.
