depicts a member of the Women’s

Aquatic Club practicing before one

of two special performances at the

DAC in 1915 and 1916.

group’s DAC exhibitions involved at

spring board diving and some form of

water basketball or baseball.

Not much else is known about

good enough to win a “big swimming

meet for women” at the Detroit

University School later in 1916. The

Another interesting aspect to the

photograph is the workmen along the

balcony of the natatorium including

a pair who seem to be positioning a

new door for the space. It is also clear

pool area featured Albert Kahn’s

dramatic use of Caen stone for

the walls and several delicate light

fixtures in the ceiling.

When it opened the new

natatorium featured two diving

boards including the one in this

image on the second level. Keep in

mind that the running track was not

at the time – you can see chairs that

are being set up around the pool for

the upcoming exhibition. 313.868.5000 TAILORED TO FIT YOU PERFECTLY Corporate Fleet Services has just the right fit for you.
