What''s The Temperature Today? - a Memory of Enfield.

Growing up in Enfield, this pool was quite a fave spot, especially during my teens - the 1960s. They always displayed the current temperature, and the security in and out was way ahead of its time - like Fort Knox, I seem to remember.
I can also recall feeling horribly self-conscious coming out of the dreadful change-closet efforts in a bikini, and having to walk what felt like miles trying to find a good spot to put a towel down to sit on. What a drama! Never mind swimming, being present at the pool was one of those exquisite tortures that had to be endured in the local boy-girl scheme of things, like hanging around outside The George, or Henekys. Looking back I think being a teen in Enfield was pretty hard work!
