EDITORS COMMENTS
Ah-ha! The magic of summer has finally arrived at Oasis Outdoor Swimming Pool in Holborn! On this sunny day in May 1959, beloved comedian and magician Tommy Cooper officially opens the pool for the season. As he steps into the water, a sudden gust of wind blows his iconic fez right off his head - leaving him momentarily flustered! Luckily, four lovely ladies from nearby Prince of Wales Theatre come to his rescue, laughing as they help Tommy retrieve his hat and regain composure. The crowd cheers on this charming scene, setting the tone for a fantastic summer ahead. Eric Harlow's photograph captures not only the joyous atmosphere but also the whimsical nature of Tommy Cooper himself - always ready with a quick wit and clever trick to delight audiences. This iconic image is now preserved as part of Memory Lane Prints' collection, allowing us to relive this carefree era when laughter and sunshine filled our lives. Soak up the nostalgia and let your imagination splash into the fun-filled world of 1950s London!
