Andrew (Boy) Charlton Pool, Wooloomooloo Bay, Sydney

The four photos above were taken 21 Oct 2007, the following ones 9th october, 2006.

Sydney is blessed with an abundance of marvellous swimming pools.

This one on part of the Harbour called Wooloomooloo Bay, with a redeveloped Finger Wharf behind is simply beautifully located.

Andrew 'Boy' Charlton (the nickname comes from the fact that he was only 14 when he came to prominence, in 1921). He won a gold medal at the 1924 Olympics in Paris, swimming 1500 metres in 20 mins 6.6 seconds. He swam in 1928 in 1932 Olympics, won a further 3 silver and 1 bronze medal, and broke 5 world records.
