I can't figure it out either,xpaddy ;--) Is the tide so high that it has covered the pool............it does seem to be right up to the shore wall.

The swimming area is actually under the water.

Back then the wall must have been a lot lower than it is today ;--)

The structure you can see with the mini dome is well to the side of the central kiosk. I would say that the photo is taken from the upper deck.
