I’ve featured the old Hoylake Swimming Baths several times over the years, but I thought this photo was worth a share.
I like this one because it not only shows a view of the pool that I’ve not seen before. The pool is busy with sun bathers, swimmers and on-lookers and you get to see what the building looked like from the inside. Outside of the pool you can see boats moored on the shore and the long-gone building at the end of Meols Parade Gardens. The flag blowing in the wind suggests a breezy day and maybe it was a cloudy day over toward the north Liverpool coast.
Looking at the houses on North Parade it looks like the bottom of Deneshey Road was sand hills?
I bet that water was bloody freezing …I’d definitely be forgetting my swimming trunks!
