The opening day of the summer season at Prestwick outdoor pool proved a big draw for these waterbabies.

The pool, which was officially known as the Bathing Lake, was opened in 1931, by William Adamson the Secretary of State for Scotland, and was the largest swimming pool north of the border.

On busy days, like the one above, it could accommodate 1200 bathers and 3000 spectators.

During the summer months, the lake was kept busy with swimming galas, diving exhibitions, moonlight swimming sessions and regular fireworks displays.

Mind you, at the end of each day, the pool resembled a bowl of verruca soup!

Sadly, the pool went into decline in the Sixties as people preferred package holidays abroad, and it closed in 1972.
