Dipping into the past

The north is in the last throes of summer while here in the southern hemisphere spring is pushing up its flower heads. To celebrate the warm weather that was for some and the promise of hot summer days to come for others, I've scanned a fabulous retro selection of swimming pools from Pools and Terraces House & Garden Guide to Landscaping and Furnishing, Gail Heathwood, Collins London and Glasgow in association with Conde Nast, 1974. Not quite warm enough to dip my toes in my pool yet. Kim on the other hand is moisturising some sunburn from a weekend swim at her parents!

yep - a pool is the only thing lacking in my backyard. Ok, and space for the pool. And a poolboy. ;)
