Nine divers off the tower, Domain Baths

About this item: 
Multiple divers leap from the tower during a swimming carnival at the Domain Baths. Designed for competition swimming, the Domain baths (The Dom) was a tidal pool with a grandstand for 1500 spectators and six-tire diving tower 54 feet above mean sea level. The antiquated Edwardian grandstand was removed in 1968 and The Dom replaced a new Olympic Pool, called the Andrew (Boy) Charlton Pool.
