Celebrate the buried Peckham Rye Lido with this unique print designed by Place in Print, originally for the campaign to reopen the Lido.
Opened in 1923, Peckham Rye Lido was situated to the north of East Dulwich Road, and provided local residents with 180 feet of open air swimming pool. After 60 years of use, the lido closed in 1987, and unable to find a buyer, the council eventually covered over the pool with earth and grass. All that remains today is a large blue fountain that once stood at the northern end of the swimming pool.
In 2014, a campaign was started to encourage Southwark Council to reinstate the Peckham Rye Lido. The campaign momentum is building, and Place in Print were approached with a view to creating a masthead for the campaign's social media profiles. This is a print version of that design, available exclusively through Place in Print.
This print is available unframed or ready-framed. Our frames are custom-made for us by a UK based picture framing company. Our frames are exceptionally high quality, wooden frames, available in a choice of three finishes - white, black or unpainted wood. We use glass rather than acrylic/plastic glazing for a faultless finish.
Frames are supplied with hanging string or brackets pre-attached, so framed pictures are ready to hang.
