Paddling Pool.(King George's Playing Fields)

Picture of the old paddling pool situated on the (King George's Playing Fields) in the mid 60s.
In the background can be seen one of the many traveling fairs that visited Hereford in those days,now the site of the "Hereford Leisure Pool".Also visible in the background is "Dry Bridge House" which in those days was very near close to collapse.
Sorry about the quality of the picture it came from a old copy of The Hereford Citizen.
