Philly-style swimming

At our public pool in North Philly, which was free, boys could swim on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, and girls Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays; Sundays was family day. You were only permitted one hour pool time, but you could go back in after you left (dressed) and returned to wait in line with the next group.

Pre AC DC

Looks like a modern oasis for kids in the swampy DC summer. Wish our municipal pools had a time machine and a tax base so they could be maintained and be actually open this summer.
