Photo Archive from Sixty Years of Scuba Diving

It’s kind of small for a photo archive, but it’s an unusual topic so in it goes: a scuba diving club in (appropriately enough) Bath, Somerset, England has created an online photo gallery to celebrate its 60th anniversary. “Bath Sub-Aqua Club was among the first branches of the British Sub-Aqua Club (BSAC) to be established, and has been responsible for introducing thousands of people to diving across the south west. Photographs from the club’s inaugural year in 1956 show old fashioned suits which many divers, known then as ‘frogmen’, made for themselves out of neoprene.”
