The swimming pool on board the Berengaria Featured Print

The swimming pool on board the Berengaria

A "Bath Club" at Sea: the modern liner's land-like buildings. Roman luxury aboard a giant liner crossing the Atlantic: a swimming bath modelled on that of Pompeii built of tiles and marble, with massive pillars and a glass roof. The swimming pool on board the Cunard ocean liner, Berengaria measuring 64 feet long by 41 feet wide, constructed of tiles and marble with mosaic work and fittings of bronze. Round the sides is a colonnade of massive pillars, supporting a glass roof which rises to the height of three decks above the bottom of the tank. Over the dressing rooms was a wide, upper gallery for spectators. A continuous cascade of fresh water entered the pool from a cascade at one end. The depth was graduated and 9 feet at its deepest. The ILN comments on the air of modern liners being akin to 'a palatial building on land' and likens the pool to a similar one on board the White Star liner Majestic. Date: 1922

Pier, Margate Featured Print

Pier, Margate

Pier, Margate - looking out through Ships Masts over water to town. Part of Box 145 Boswell Collection - East Coast. Margate was recorded as 'Meregate' in 1264 and as 'Margate' in 1299, but the spelling continued to vary into modern times. The name is thought to refer to a pool gate or gap in a cliff where pools of water are found, often allowing swimmers to jump in. The cliffs of the Isle of Thanet are composed of chalk, a fossil-bearing rock. Date: circa 1900
