At the end of January, I posted a picture of the Marquette Natatorium taken in October 2009 paired with a photo my wife’s niece, Laurie Evertt (of Annie Laurie’s Antiques), shot January 29 of this year. Her photo (above) showed it looking pretty shabby.
Good news: Natatorium looks spiffy
The was some speculation that the building might be headed for the wrecking ball, but we had a pleasant surprise when we drove past the place on Easter. It was sporting a spiffy new paint job.
It needs some black paint inside the carved name to make it look like new.
It’s no longer being used as a swimming pool, but it appears the building will be around for us to appreciate for a few more years.
