Eugene McKinley Memorial Pool Dedication on June 17th, 1967

The original Portsmouth Daily Times caption for the photograph reads: "Pool Dedicated. Mayor Merle Odle is about to get a hand up from City Manager Huxley Kennedy out of the Eugene McKinley Memorial Swimming Pool following dedication ceremonies Saturday afternoon. After announcing that swimming would be 'on the house' for the day, a group of bystanders, reportedly the city manager and other councilmen, threw the mayor in. Odle seemed to enjoy being the first person to try out the new pool during Saturday's 90-plus degree weather. (Times photo by John Thomas)."
