The saltwater lido at Grange-over-Sands, overlooking Morecambe Bay, is a pleasant place to pass the time, even for non-swimmers, in this short film shot in the pool's early days. Plenty of people do take to the water, though, swimming and splashing in the sunshine and fresh air, in keeping with the 1930s vogue for health and fitness. The lido's design is very 1930s too, showcasing Art Deco style.
