Boys clown around during one of their days in the sun at the Woodlawn swimming pool. Because of large crowds, boys took over the water on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. Girls were in the waves on another three days of the week.
Boys’ night out means carousing.
In 1960, boys’ day in meant cannonballs.
The guys were at Schenectady’s Woodlawn Park swimming pool on Kings Road. High heat was in town for summer, and the free swimming pool attracted dozens of water fans.
The crowds were too large. Because so many boys and girls suited up for the cold stuff, Woodlawn supervisors adopted a rule. Boys were allowed cannonball splashes on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. Girls were in the swim on another three days in the week.
