Hart House pool


My main reason for taking the Hart House tour was to see the art deco pool. However, I have to admit that I was severely disappointed. I have been to a few art deco pools in Europe and they were much more impressive (tilework, architectural details, etc), but I suppose I shouldn't compare the old world to the new! The skylights do make this a nice place for a swim, if you have the right membership card.


It's also unfortunate that the gallery area seems to double as a storage space so I couldn't get a shot without some lousy junk in it. But I guess that's how it goes - there are always some disappointments in life.

The experience may have been disappointing, but the photos certainly aren't! The angle of the first shot showcases the space beautifully.

I have only seen the Hart House from the outside. Thanks to you, over the last few days I have have the grand tour.

It looks like a fine pool, but I agree that it is not as much of an architectural feast as some others might be.

Looks not unlike some high school pools I've seen in the upper midwest. I can feel the humidity and smell the reek of chlorine!

What a beautiful roof.

I really like how you composed the top shot.

I hate the new word verification. Since I have trouble reading those "words", I am assuming others do too.
