Seattle Municipal Archives Photo of the Month

Opening of Lincoln Park Swimming Pool, July 27, 1925

This pool was dug out of dirt with a retaining wall of rocks along the sides.

It filled with salt water from Puget Sound.

A muddy bottom and control valves that did not always contain the water eventually required a pool made of concrete and tile.

The Laurence Colman Pool, dedicated on July 4, 1941, is also filled with salt water from the Sound.
