Fantastic pictures.......especially the first two!!!!
The first photo takes me right back to the summers of my childhood,feeling the heat of the sun as I emerged,FREEZING,from the ladies changing rooms.No matter how warm it was outside the changing rooms always seemed cold and wet.Having to put on a soaking wet costume didn't help.......we were always told to hang our swimming costumes out to dry when we came home, but there were always so many other things to do...........
Approaching the pool,the sun glistened on the water and I could hear the shreaks and squeals of people having fun.Some days I would run down the wall and jump in close to the 8ft? ladder,on other days it was down the steps into the baby pool and walk out until it was deep enough to swim.
I can almost picture myself sitting on those seats afterwards with a towel around my shoulders @-->>
Great days......thanks to Brian McKinley for sharing these wonderful photos :thank you:

Isn't it strange the way the memory blocks out the bad weather :rotfl:

They are great photos :D I also have it on good authority that the person in the first photo is in fact Brian McKinley himself :D

Lovely old photos.
I particularly like the one of
the waves hitting up against the
Bath wall.
Looks pretty rough.

Lovely photographs brings back so many happy memories......I love the photo of the waves crashing against the baths wall,Iloved it when the sea was rough and lots of big waves to jump into.(maybe not that big).On a sunny day after swimming, Iwould sit on the topdeck with my pineapple cream bun, bought in kelly's shop in Queens street. They got their pastries delivered from the Mourne bakery in Kilkeel and they were delicious. Eating my bun and listening to Donny Osmond and David Cassidy records being played ,it was bliss. :--)

Never occurred to me that maybe that was why you chose that name topdeck! I have lovely memories of the baths too.....was it my imagination or were the summers really warm then? Would love to say I was listening to Donny Osmond as I lay sunbathing but nobody would believe me........more like Cliff and Elvis, as it was at least a generation earlier!
