  • Short Summary

    Lots of fun in a large new swimming pool in Germany - there is a wave machine.

  • Description

    "This is the new kind of swimming bath that is becoming the rage of Germany."

    M/S of an amazing looking indoor swimming pool. There are large advertising posters around the walls and a balcony for spectators. Lots of people are in the pool and hanging around the edges. M/S of the edge of the pool. Fun and games as people are tipped into the pool by their friends. Various shots of people diving from a diving board. One man does a comedy jump.

    "No more placid waters for bathers - the mechanism behind the netting keeps everything moving - " M/S of people in the pool. They dive into the waves - presumably an early wave machine. Various shots of everyone having fun. M/S showing the spectators' gallery. There are tables and chairs - very civilised.

    Was an item in Pathe Pictorial issue number 606.

    Note: we don't see anyone surfing by the way! It is a pretty cool swimming pool.

    Note: this can was previously known as EP253B.
