Andrew (Boy) Charlton Pool

A sensational place for a quick dip, a swimming lesson or a leisurely bite at the harbourside café. Boy Charlton was just 14 when he won a major swimming championship and became a national idol. His status was confirmed when he beat the Swedish world record holder Arne Borg three times in early 1924, and he went on to compete in three Olympic Games (1924, 1928 and 1932).
