A new discovery: Richmond Lido 1929, by Warren Gardens.
The heyday of the lido was an exciting time - in many places a holiday on the doorstep. In the case of recent renovations they have been updated to such an extent that they have been described as a mini-Med holiday.
Going to a lido was a fun day out; a place to relax and socialise. This project will look at what our lidos meant to local people.
We shall also consider our lidos within the context of the current lido revival and follow the development of lidos across the country.
