The Taipei Air Station Swimming Pool

The Pool - the sweet feel of refreshment on a hot Taipei day!
Here's another photo sent in by Jim Caumo. This photo was taken before the new 3 story barracks was completed.
Photographs taken inside Taipei Air Station are rare.

Jim identifies the rooms you see across, fronting the pool as Bachelor Airmen Quarters.
If you notice, a number of antenna are visible above the roof. Those antenna sat on top of the Cotton Building, the 2165th Communications Squadron facility, kitty corner across the street.

Below is a photo of the "new", Air Station facility, taken probably in 1975, photo courtesy of Les Duffin.

If you look directly to the right of the water tower, you can see the Taipei Air Station swimming pool. (click on the picture for a larger view) The Pool, a refreshing stop on a hot day. NO RUNNING ALLOWED......

During 1966-1968 these rooms were dedicated to general use rooms, one of the offices to the right was the education center where you could take courses from the University of Maryland via mail. Further to the roight, unseen in this photo, were the American Express Office, the BX and libray. Just behind this photo was the “bank or Credit Uniion”.
