Pool postcard: Coney Island, Cincinnati, Ohio
The description on the card reads:
"Coney Island, a pleasure resort, is on the Ohio River....its recirculating swimming pool is the largest of its kind."
This pool, called the Sunlite Pool was built in 1925, and measures 200 x 401 feet. It still exists, as can be seen at this link.
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!
