Random information on the term “Lido”:
The golden age of lidos in the United Kingdom was in the 1930s, when outdoor swimming became popular, and 169 were built across the UK as recreational facilities by local councils. Many lidos closed when foreign holidays became less expensive, but those that remain have a dedicated following.
The first open air swimming pool that was officially called a lido was “The Edmonton Lido” in Houndsfield Road, Edmonton following reopening after refurbishment on 27 July 1935. The newly built “Tottenham Lido”, opened on 5 June 1937, and the “West Ham Municipal Lido”, opened on 30 August 1937 also in London, were officially called lidos from the outset. Elsewhere, the Woodford Times reported on 13 May 1932 on the new “Lido” being constructed at Whipps Cross. The Kentish Times on 9 June 1933 similarly carried the headline: “Lagoon ‘Lido’ Opened on Bank Holiday”. Neither of these two pools was officially called a “lido” at that time, however. The term “lido” was also applied to several private sector swimming facilities, including Ruislip Lido (part of a reservoir) opened in May 1936 and Rush Green Lido in old gravel pits in Romford, Essex, in September 1935.[unreliable source?]
