Re: Header Photo 'Then & Now'
I'm still not sure that it was 1937. It looks more like 50's to me. And yes the paddling pool was still there in the fifties.
I believe that we have had this discussion before and I believe that the Duck Pond (where the grass is) was drained in around 1939. I have no evidence for this however. Does anyone have anything definitive?
