Die verrottenden Schwimmbäder von London

Gigi Cifali hat eine Fotoserie namens „Absence of Water“ mit verrottenden, verlassenen Schwimmbädern in London. Erinnert mich ziemlich an diesen Flickr-Thread um genau dasselbe Thema. Grade im Sommer haben die Dinger was besonders apokalyptisches.

In the Thirties London's outdoor lidos were at the peak of their popularity. Gradually tastes have changed, resulting in a drop in attendances, leaving the pools uneconomical to run. Many fell into decay and many were demolished. Only a handful of pools remain today as a symbol of a bygone era.
