How Awesome Was It To Swim in the Reflecting Pool?

These boys look like they’re having the time of their lives. This photo was taken back in the 1920s, when you were able to swim in the Reflecting Pool. I should note that they are swimming there because Congress failed to appropriate the money for the District pools. But, good thing that would never happen today.
