There used to be a swimming pool on this east end of the building between JM and the east parking lot and my wife always thought it was an odd location for the pool. She says that it had a silver (aluminum?) fence around it to keep people out. She remembers several swimware fashion shows around the pool in the 1960's. Her best friend Ouida Ingram served on Jordan Marsh's Teen Board in 1969 through 1971 and my wife would accompany her to JM every Saturday so Ouida could do her Teen Board duties. She believes that the pool lasted until the huge Omni garage entrance ramp was built just east of the JM building in the mid to late 1970's.
