Proposed Sandwich Swimming Pool

As talk continues about municipal swimming pools, I thought this proposal from 1931, that was never realized might be appropriate.

Another one for the unbuilt files… From the Border Cities Star, August 12, 1931:

    HERE is the drawing made by Mr. Robert M. Thompson Sandwich architect and engineer, of a
    proposed municipal bathing pool. The picture shows part of the 90 x 60 foot pool and the attractive
    service building. The whole plant, he estimates. could be erected for $40,000 including a complete
    filtration and chlorination equipment and locker rooms and shower accommodation for nearly 500 bathers.

Come to think of it, I’m not aware of any municipal outdoor pools built until the Pool at Atkinson Park on Riverside Dr opened in the mid 1950’s.
