Learning how to dive
Hmmmm . . . I have a strange, uncanny feeling that third from left of picture is going to perform a most spectacular "belly-flop".
(At least, I think that it what it is)
Handsome young man about to climb out of the pool
Oooh, a cleft chin AND a tattoo!!!
If only I could "Favorite" this one! I find it incredibly touching, sexy and charming - I hope those of you who have not seen it before, might feel the same.
Louche young men relaxing by the pool
Hmmmm . . . those two at the front need a bucket of cold water poured over them!
Demonstration of a race dive
Good Lord, I do believe there is a woman there!!!
Nine members of a German swimming team - circa 1920s or early 1930s
Hmmm . . . this deserves, I think, some close scrutiny. Having "scrutinised", however, I feel obliged to "nail my colours to the mast" and declare a bed-partner for the evening. And which, may you well ask, is the favoured one to be?

Do you know, I could have sworn that I had already uploaded this photograph, but can not find any trace of it in my "Keyword Search". never mind, I am sure they might bring a little "frisson" into the hearts of one or two of you, my dear viewers.

as for me, my "colours" would have been firmly planted on the shor…

High schookl swimming team, circa 1930s
Oh, those clinging wet one-piece swimming costumes . . . I would imagine one would have to be very brave to wear them, especially when they were wet. Four of the boys appear to be quite embarrassed. by the effect.
High school swimming team - circa 1950s or early 1960s
I suppose that is their Coach, dressed in the shiny shorts - satin or gold lame, do you think?
More young habitués of the same open-air swimming pool, somewhere in Europe - circa 1914
They look slightly cold, or else bored with having to pose for the "art student" all the time. And is the young chap in the centre, with his friend's hand resting on his right shoulder, holding a cigarette in his right hand?
Young toughs posing for the camera - European, early 20th Century
