COG: Swimsuit Edition

The 74th Edition of the Carnival of Genealogy is all about bathing beauties. I found these old pictures of myself when going through my grandmother's photo albums that I've recently inherited. I used to take swimming lessons every year at the community pool where I grew up in Vinton, Louisiana. I think the second picture was taken around 1987. It looks like I was younger in that one, and it seems that I must have been young enough to require someone to catch me. The first picture was probably taken around 1989 or 1990.


  1. You don't see many diving boards in public or private pools anymore. The water looks so inviting!

  2. Yes, I am thinking they must be too much of a liability now. I know a lot of public pools no longer have deep ends. I think apartment complexes are now regulated with how deep their pools can be. That was a 12 foot pool!

  3. When I was a kid in the late 70's, I used to go to the pool on base. It was a lot of fun! I love your pictures!

  4. Yikes..a diving board...only did one of those a swimming class in college.Once was

    Great photos, Jennifer!
