Two identical posters of Minehead’s outdoor swimming pool are to be sold by Lawrences Auctioneers of Crewkerne.

Entered for sale by a client with Minehead connections, the posters were originally acquired by a gentleman who worked at the lido and later at Butlins.

The Minehead Swimming Pool was opened in 1936, a magnificent open air pool , which was paid for by the Luttrell family of Dunster Castle for the enjoyment of the people of Minehead.

The posters will be sold in Lawrences Collectors Sale, on 15 November in Crewkerne.
