Oldest pool in Paris. Freestyle stroke practice & history lesson.

November 8th, 2013, 8pm

Today, I took my 4th freestyle stroke lesson. As I walk back home, I try to imagine the factory workers, 120 years ago, after a hard day at work building radiators or likely offloading coal from the nearby barges washing themselves in the cold, uncovered public bath that stood here and gave birth, over generations, to this clean, covered and warm pool.

Pamela, Steve, David Wade, Sam and 7 others said thanks.
