Opening Day, 28 July 1906

The scene on the opening day after all the formalities had been completed. According to one local paper, hundreds of small boys ‘unblushingly undressed and were sampling the quality of the water long before the ‘big guns’ had departed’. See Wandsworth Borough News (03/08/1906) and South Western Star (03/08/1906) for detailed accounts of the occasion
