Pool postcard: Water ballet, Jones Beach State Park, Long Island. New York

Esther Williams, eat your heart out!

This pool still exists. Apparently it was closed in the summer of 2009 due to economic cutbacks. Up to 10 000 people a day were using it on a weekend day. By 2010 the other pool was also closed. Read more here.

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!
