The Lido pattern was inspired by the Art Deco architecture of the 1920's and 30's. At that time many towns, and particularly those by the sea had an outdoor swimming pool called a lido, quite often built in the fashionable Art Deco style of the time. In the days before foreign travel a trip to a lido was a way to experience a little piece of continental life in Britain. In their heyday there were nearly 200 lidos in the UK but sadly most of these were demolished by the end of the 1980's due to having fallen into disrepair. This picture is of Tarlair lido, situated only 25 miles from The Croft House on the Banffshire coast. (credit: Tom Willett Photography)
