The wading pool at the Olive Recreation Center opened on Wednesday, August 8, 1945. According to the Los Angeles Times, the pool was completed and opened in August though the rest of the park had yet to be completed due to a wartime lack of materials. This photo likely dates from the brief time after the pool had opened yet before the grass was planted that fall. From notes on photo: “Olive Park -- Wading pool in the 40’s.”
