Bathing in the middle of town? Did you know that between 1884 and 1933 you could swim in a cold bath house by Norrström?

Strömbadet was the first cold bath house in Stockholm and was located on the water in front of City Hall. It was a beautiful building, built in renaissance style and would work for Stockholmers' health and swimming skills. School children, police and firefighters had free admission, for other visitors the admission was 35 öre. The power bath had a section for women, one for young boys and the largest, western pool for men who know how to swim. This is the section you see in the photograph. The power bath was a place for several big swimming competitions. In the picture you see a swimming jump sometime between the years 1900-1910. An impressive photograph by Axel Malmström showing men doing simultaneous advanced swimming jumps. A man jumps with his back to us: an advanced jump that seems to be in the cock. In the picture you also see an orchestra playing on the second level.

What do you think, maybe it's time for a new Strömbad in Norrström? It would probably be a success pretty quickly!
