1948, London: The Empire (Olympic) Pool

View of the Empire Pool with a water polo match in progress. The two swimmers behind the goal at the shallow end of the bath were there to return the ball when it went out of play. The persons sweated on the bath side at the far side of the picture are officials and competitors, while those in the raised stand immediately in front of the spectators are Press officers at the special positions provided with world telephone communication.
