This image shows the Bloomington Municipal Pool from the southwest looking toward Lincoln Street. What is today (2015) the Boys & Girls Club building at 311 S. Lincoln Street can be seen just right of center in the background. The old band shell can be seen at extreme right (see also image P0028987).

This image scanned from the original negative found in the collection (C505) of Thomas Nesbit Mathers (AB 1936 Economics). The negative was found with three others that were all shot at the Bloomington Municipal Pool which was located at what is today (2015) Third Street Park. The other three images are P0055440, P0055442 and P0055443. See image P0055440 for a more complete description regarding the provenance of these four images.
