When staff here in the San Francisco History Center read about the death of Olympic swimmer Ann Curtis Cuneo, we searched our files and came up with some gems from the 1940s:
|Ann Curtis at Fleishhacker Pool, instructing students, July 12, 1944.|
|Swimming stars Ann Curtis and Johnny Weissmuller at Fleishhacker Pool, July 5, 1944.|
|Artist Beniamino Bufano with Peggy Sparling and Ann Curtis Cuneo.|
Our file for the Crystal Plunge Swim Team has clippings, programs club bulletins, most of which feature Ann Curtis. Crystal Plunge was a saltwater swimming pool located on Lombard Street in North Beach that closed in the mid-1950s.
