Aren't these young women looking fabulous at the annual Bathing Beauties competition at Prestwick open air swimming pool in 1952? No bikinis for contestants in those days, although one lady has a daring bare midriff.

Prestwick Bathing Lake as it was called, was Scotland's largest pool and could accommodate up to 1200 swimmers, but surely that would have been standing-room only. It opened in 1931, and attracted thousands of holidaymakers, particularly from Glasgow, in the summer, but it went into decline in the Sixties as people preferred package holidays abroad, and it closed in 1972.
