An Audacious Venture: The Herbert Fleishhacker Swimming Pool

Tuesday, Jul 9, 2013 7:00p
The Old Mint San Francisco, CA

The Herbert Fleishhacker Municipal Swimming Pool was a monumental and unique natatorium, conceived of and built at a time when San Franciscans thought big and acted upon grand ideas. Using historical photographs, Mike Phipps will present the history of the pool from its origins in the 1920s to its closing in 1971 when deferred maintenance, civic indifference and budgetary concerns spelled doom for the magnificent bathhouse and pool.

Programs will be preceded by a 7pm reception.
