Baths re-open 1951

What we know about this image :

Seaton Baths had been closed for the duration of the war and some six years after. When they finally reopened in May 1951 there were massive queues and people waited outside for the last hourly session to end before hopefully being admitted. On the first day 3,500 swimmers used the pool and four days later on May 13th the queue on this picture shows it was still long.
