Arrow Tynemouth outdoor pool

Tynemouth outdoor pool was opened on 30th May 1925.
It was filled by the tide. It was a popular hang out, the familys had there picnics on the beach, the cool kids made for the pool. I think it was last used for canoe lessons in the early 90's. It was filled with rocks in 1996 and here it is today.
Firstly taken from a postcard. This is rare picture from 1917 looks odd without the pool.

these two are from1929.

But if you're really so shy,
why are you standing in the light?
