Scope and Content

File documents unexecuted modifications to an exterior swimming pool area for a hotel located in Firth of Forth, Scotland. The hotel burned down before the construction could begin (Shubert, with Price). Conceptual sketches show a design for a structure to cover the pool. The proposed programme for the project states that: "An outdoors swimming pool is a source of voluntary delight. Being outside is a particular quality which must not be lost through misapplied protection. In all cases this unique element of glamour related to site, season, time of day and occupancy must be exploited." Photographs document the existing site and structures. Material in this file was produced in 1975.

Joe Lyons, of Lyons catering and teahouse businesses, was also the client for O.C.H. Feasibility Study (AP144.S2.D59) and Blackpool Project (AP144.S2.D81). Frederick Salmon, of Salmon and Gluckstein, owned Lyons' businesses and was the client representative for Scotswim, O.C.H. Feasibility Study, and Blackpool Project (Shubert, with Price, 1996). Information on attribution based on the content of the file and on notes by Howard Shubert, CCA Curator of Prints and Drawings, in conversation with Cedric Price.

File contains conceptual drawings.
