Penzance jubilee pool ripples

It's gonna take a while to fill like that. One of the most unusual and pleasing designs of the era was the Jubilee Pool at Penzance designed by Captain F. Latham, the Borough Engineer. The pool was opened in 1935, the year of King George V's Silver Jubilee. It was built right on the shore line at Penzance and had to be designed to cope with the full ferocity of the Cornish seas. The pool is triangular in shape. In spite of this, straight edges have been avoided and gentle curves make it a most pleasant environment".
