Belllingham Swimming Pool – South London 1965

Kathy Roy bracklesham bay 1963 1_0006

In a mis-spent youth Anthony Sargeant worked as a lifeguard and pool attendant at Bellingham Open Air Swimming Pool in South London (long since closed down).Here standing on the edge of the pool are three of his colleagues on a fine sunny day. From left to right, Derek, T….? , and Norman. It was an interesting a relatively well paid job especially when working overtime (time and a half) ¬†or on Sundays and Bank Holidays (double time). Because it was open air we were required to wear white trousers as Derek and Norman are doing (they must have been on duty when the photograph was taken).
