Looking Back: ‘Memories from the Lido’
One of Peterborough’s iconic buildings, and a leisure destination for generations of Peterborians, the Lido failed to open its doors last year because of the coronavirus pandemic.
Happily, albeit with restrictions, it re-opened this week.
To celebrate here are some pictures – one of youngsters having a splashing time and the other of the famous facade and some other images from theh venue’s past.
The Lido first opened as the Corporation Swimming Pool in 1936 by then mayor of Peterborough, Arthur Mellows.
