Pen sketch and hadwritten note by the pool's designer, Frank Latham.  The text reads: Pen sketch of the proposed Open Air Bathing Pool at the Battery Rocks Penzance, with St. Athony Gardens in background, by F Latham.  

Swimming historian, Geoff Swallow, noted the roughness of the sea, in comparison with the calm pool waters, plus the prominence of the watchful lifeguard on the left, and how these details could help make the case for Latham’s proposed design.
