Market St Pool - 1971 - Lancaster SC

We're willing to bet half of every Lancaster child got their swim lessons from Bobbie Hagins.

Here, she patrols the deck at Market Street Pool on July 16, 1971. Hagins taught hundreds of children how to swim over the years.

The pool was located at the intersection of Market St. and Chesterfield Ave, behind the Lancaster County Library.
