Photographer's Note

Good Morning Everyone,

I'm sure you will find this post very different from those which I have been posting from Horningsea.

One day, Len and I cycled along the banks of the River Cam (I have the bruises to confirm it!) to visit the ancient city of Cambridge.

On the outskirts of the city, we came upon this colourful and intriguing facade! We learned that it was the outer wall of a lido - how interesting was that!!!
The art seemed to be advocating diversity and friendship.

Of course, we weren't able to enter but I have researched the lido and here is the information:
Jesus Green Swimming Pool is a Lido situated on Jesus Green in Cambridge. Opened in 1923, it is one of the few remaining examples of the lidos built across the country in the 1920s — open air pools with space for activities other than swimming. Unusually, the pool is significantly longer than it is wide. This was a design idea to mimic swimming in the nearby river. It opens for public swimming between May and September every year. The Lido is unheated, wetsuits are not compulsory but are strongly recommended at water temperatures are below 14 degrees.

At that temperature, I doubt I would have enjoyed swimming!!

Have a good day, Bev :-)
