The Dolphins of Clacton Pier

Bubble and Squeak jumping hoops (1978)
The building in the background was an indoor pool for the dolphins during the winter, it was heated
and kept Bubble and Squeak out of the cold and out of harms way during severe storms.
There was access to the outside pool via a connecting gate inside the building.
