Looking towards the Picture Bridge end in 1939 - the pool stops short. If it did extend to under the bridge sometime in the
preceding thirteen years, it might give another ten to maybe twelve feet length as Earl Boebert suggests. That would still
make it only half the length of an Olympic pool and it was always much too narrow anyway. I doubt it was ever touted in
any seriousness back then as an Olympic size pool. The pools for the 1928 (Amsterdam) and 1932 (Los Angeles) Olympics
were both 50m long.
