Swimmers 1909

I simply had to share this photo with a wider audience. These fine young men, pictured in 1909, were swimming in the open air pool in Cannon Hill park, Birmingham. On the back is written 'Cannon Hill Nuts'. My grandfather, Sidney Wood, is the well clothed man on the right.

Great photo! I love to see what folk got up to years ago, but look at the date - 1909, so how many of these fine young men survived the 1914-1918 war I wonder.
