Four-fifths of Labour’s 1937 local elections slogan seem to have aged pretty well. But whatever happened to lidos?

Better Homes. Good Schools. Health Care. Play Fields. Lidos.

(Aside, that is, from Gordon Brown’s brief 2008 interest in them.)

  1. Well, in Wycombe, it was the LibDems who led the campaign to save our local open air swimming pool, now known as Wycombe Lido. Maybe the brothers of 1937 were more far sighted than you give them credit for Mark:)

    • High Wycombe's Lido was built on top of the Roman Villa in 1954. By a Labour Borough Council.
