This color phototgraph undoubtedly accompanied sales material from the manufacturer of these swimming pools. Photographs lend themselves to this kind of advertising because naturally a salesman cannot lug an entire swimming pool from door to door. However, this photograph of a graphic shows the kind of idealized world that pool buyers may fantisize about. During the latter half of the 20th century a backyard pool became a reality for many suburban residents.
