Thanks to Felicity O'Neil for sending in this great photo.  She thinks it is from either 1966 or 1967. 

She writes "I have so many fond memories of the Dickson Pool. It's where I learnt to swim and we couldn't wait for it to open each summer ... We lived in Watson then and would walk to the pool after school..."

If anyone else has old Dickson Pool photos please send them in as we're really interested to see how the place has changed and hearing the memories attached to the photos.
