#499 ... Thorndon Summer Pool

Thorndon Summer Pool in Murphy Street ... just over the road from the New World Supermarket ... it originally opened in 1924 and has been a "summer only" pool since then ... used by school kids, business suits, mothers and children ... it has a picnic and barbecue area to the left. The water looks very inviting and maybe alsmost warm ... YEAH RIGHT

Now for "Mediterranean Kiwi" the red roof building in the background is the relatively new classroom block at Wellington Girls College ... more photos of your old school to come
