Missourian Photographer Fred Lynch had to cover a ball game at Capaha Park Saturday afternoon. He was kind enough to shoot these updated photos of the heavy equipment continuing to demolish the Capaha Park Pool.
This was taken at the northwest corner of the pool, in the deep water end. The equipment has already broken through the chemical room under the diving area described by Jacqie / Bill Jackson in the first story.

Photographers love climbing on things; crawling under them or swinging from them. There aren’t many jobs where people pay you to act like a kid. Most of us who swam in that pool also climbed all over this switch engine from the cement plant.
