Comments about this page

In the summer of 1959 I had a swimmers season ticket for Great Yarmouth Swimming Pool and remember in the afternoons the deep end would be roped off for the Water Follies. I saw the show every day. The synchronised swimmers, the man on the bike  falling in and then being pulled along with a rope, the dives and of course Perry Blake's death defying dive into the pool. It's all in my mind like it was yesterday.
