Female pool had a diving platform...................much more fun. 

Also had a "wee" pool, with a diving board as I recall?

Paisley cross to the right and the old cinema that burned down killing many kids behind the buildings front of shot

Cross to the left.  Cinema house in actual fact didn't burn down. There was no fire. It was the smoke and stampede that resulted in the poor kids being crushed at the exit doors.

Which incidentlly opened inwards.  It was one of a couple of disaster that led to fire door regulations.
