Photographer's Note

The swimming pool of Roubaix became a museum:
The Museum is implanted since autumn, 2001 on the site of the ancient municipal swimming pool which is an exceptional buildingship Art-Deco. This swimming pool was built between 1927 and 1932 by the architect Albert Baert on the initiative of the mayor, Jean Lebas.
Today registered on the heritage of the XXth century, this swimming pool offered to the population of Roubaix a high-quality sports and hygienic service. Closed since 1985, for safety reasons. The Swimming pool, restored by the architect Jean-Paul Philippon, shelters now, the Museum of Art and industry of Roubaix.
I already had to publish the reflection of the window in the pond:

Here is another sight than I like because I find it significant of the architecture Art-déco.
The typography of the entrance of the swimming pool, typical of period, was preserved. We perceive in the bottom some of the exposed works.
So that the visitors feel more in the atmosphere, we hear a soundtrack with the rumours of a covered swimming pool.
Finally to indicate forgreedy people, a very pleasant place to take a meal!
