Here’s a postcard of the Florida pool built by Dick Pope at his Cypress Gardens to entice films to be produced at the Winter Have site. He specifically was looking to lasso swimming champ and film star, Esther Williams, to put a cinematic spotlight on Cypress Gardens. It worked. Williams made a number of films and a TV special at the attraction.
