Peter Hartlaub on SFGate has put together another winning gallery of historic photos, this time showing lost swimming pools of the city.

Happily (for WNP readers) the article focuses on Sutro's and Fleischacker's, and includes some photos of Ann Curtis and Charlie Sava.

I've never seen several of the Sutro photos before, especially the ones of grammar school kids eating lunch at the Baths in 1953, but Fleischacker's looks exactly like it did when I swam there in the mid-1960s; huge, cold, aging and empty.
