As seen in the above photo, the major alterations and additions are: a full, two-story screened-in porch on the left; new, enlarged locker rooms'for men and women, complete with doorways to the patio outside (lower right); a large addition to a former small, private dining room (upper right); a 10' x 20' wading pool (small arrow, right); and a 20' x 60' swimming pool (east end of pool shown under large arrow, left). • • ; ' ' The two pools, complete with bath house, are nearly ready for use at the present time, while some work remains to be done on the interior portion of the main building.
