CC photo #62: An old Tórshavn swim pool ticketing machine


This seems to be the original ticketing machine of former outdoor swimming pool in Tórshavn, Faroe Islands, now on display in the current indoor pool opened in 1982. Tickets say from left to right: “Kvinnur” (Women), “Bað húgva” (Swim cap), “Gentur” (Girls), “Dreingir” (Boys), “Baðtoy” (Swim Clothes), “Áskoðarapláss” (Spectator seat). No room for men, apparently :-)
