Description

The southwest corner of the pool as it appeared after the lattice fences were put up in the 1960s and before their removal in 1992.

The lattice was constructed by G. Morris Steinbraker, according to GD I-3-81D. The installation dates are taken from an interview with former Superintendent Don Smith.

Photograph undated, possibly 1992 based on related photographs showing the lattice before removal.
