John Thompson Ladies Championship Cup 1925-2005

          

Story:

“Me, my mother and my sister all won this cup at Selby Swimming Club, in 1927, 1959 and 1960. Before I took care of it recently, it had been squashed flat at some point.”
 

History:

The Swimming and Slipper Baths opened in Selby Park in 1901 and closed in 1992. During the winter months the baths doubled as a dance hall. A sprung floor laid across the pool created a space licensed for up to 500 dancers.
