Wylie's Baths, Coogee

In the early 1900s, swimming pools were built hewn from rock platforms and below many of the rocky headlands of Sydney beaches around Sydney (and beaches to the north and south of Sydney). They remain popular today, many hosting winter swimming clubs.

Wylie's Baths at Coogee date from 1907 and were restored in 1994-95 (the website linked here has some interesting info and images)

There's some more pictures posted here, including another self-portrait.
