Wind­back Wed­nes­day

The Tribune (NZ) - - YOUR PAPER, YOUR PLACE -

The Li­d­owas opened by Mayor G MRen­nie on 15 Novem­ber 1966 – re­ported to be a beau­ti­fully sunny day. The event­was a great suc­cess, with crowds of Palmer­ston North res­i­dents try­ing out the new­pools, re­fresh­ment kiosk and gen­eral fa­cil­i­ties. The in­au­gu­ral swim in the newO­lympic­sized pool­was un­der­taken by a Com­mon­wealth Games cham­pion, but it is un­known who braved the div­ing board for the very first time. Manawatu Her­itage has thou­sands of pho­to­graphs like this one that shows the best of your re­gion’s his­tory. Ex­plore, share and con­trib­ute to­day at man­awatuher­itage.pncc.govt.nz (Source: Ian Mathe­son City Archives)
