|Title||Colman Pool, Seattle, 1941 |
|Caption||A salt-water pool dug at Lincoln Park in 1926 had mud sides and bottom, and proved to be very popular. Swimming enthusiasts then called for contructing a more permanent swimming pool. In 1941, Kenneth Colman and his family, long-time residents of Fauntleroy, donated funds to the city for an outdoor salt-water pool and bathhouse to honor his father, Laurence Colman (1860-1935), who was the son of Scottish-born engineer James M. Colman. The Colman Pool continues as one of the city's favorite swimming pools. |
