SS Stanley Park's Swimming Pool
SS Stanley Park's Swimming Pool

Two of the SS Stanley Park's crew pose in their ship's improvised swimming pool on Christmas Day 1944.

In hot, tropical weather, open swimming pools on deck allowed sailors to bathe and to cool off. Behind the two men is one of the ship's large rectangular life rafts, mounted on an inclined plane that will allow it to be launched quickly in case of emergency. The complex mesh of the ship's anti-torpedo nets, intended to protect against enemy torpedoes, is visible in the background.
