Every child who is “physically fit” should learn to swim by the time he or she leaves primary school, said Singapore’s first prime minister Lee Kuan Yew in the 1970s. Swimming, now practically a national pastime, appeals to young and old, amateurs and elite athletes alike. However, little has been documented about the genesis of our aquatic aspirations and reminiscences: the swimming pool. Evoking nostalgia, Great Lengths: Singapore’s Swimming Pools pays tribute with delightful illustrations, lovely old photographs and cherished memories.
