I thought I would try out my new camera and took randomly this photo of a group of swimmers at the YMCA pool. The photo appreared in The Guardian dated April 29th 1948. Unfortunately, my flash was not on thus the poor results. This was one of my regular activities in the 40s as the "Y" was just around the corner from my home. To the right of the "Y" was a field where we played baseball in the summer and there was a skating rink where we played hockey in the winter.
I am also including an old photo of the "Y" and a recent one I took of the residential complex that replaced it.
Are there any members that remember that YMCA at 1000 Gordon street wich was between Bannantyne and the aqueduct (Champlain Blvd did not exhist in the 40s).
