Photo of the day – Original tiles (Enfield pool in Sydney)
Published by imageservices on August 20, 2008 in Photo of the day.
These are the original tiles at Enfield pool in Sydney. The pool opened in 1933 and was designed by the architectural firm Rudder and Grout. Enfield pool still has the oldest, outdoor freshwater pool in Sydney. Rudder and Grout also designed North Sydney Olympic pool and Granville Olympic pool, which opened later in 1936.
This was shot for the photographic immersive featured in the new exhibition on modernism in Australia – Modern Times: the untold story of modernism in Australia, at the Powerhouse Museum..
