Pool postcard: Allegheny State Park, New York


From the diving platform, this appears to be a more formal pool, but resembling an area called the 'Old Mud Hole'. I found the pictures below at the site Allegany State Park Historical Society. Note that the postcard I have spells it "Allegheny". The photos below are labelled early 1930s, and it looks to be the same era as the postcard.




I collect vintage postcards of swimming pools. I plan to post one a day as far as possible. If you know any of these places, especially the fate of the pool, I'd love to hear from you!

Hi Sally,

Thanks so much for your blog. Inspirational. I love this as much as you do evidently. While you have the time check out our construction company Aloha Pools in Melbourne. I'm sure you will get something from it. We also have a face book account.

I have been reading Springboard in the Pond recently. A favorite!

Thanks again. Nathan
