Ruislip Lido

 Below are a number of pictures that Ruislip Online has acquired showing views around Ruislip Lido. Some of this are copyright to Ruislip Online and some are not. All are shown here as they are of historical interest and not out of any financial gain.

If you would like to use a picture shown here for any reason, or think you might own copyright to one or more of them please contact Ruislip Online

You may have some pictures in your loft showing views from yesteryear around the Lido, if you have, and would like to see them featured here for all to see then please contact Ruislip Online.


This is a very early shot of the main building at the Lido that was subsequently destroyed by fire and replaced by the Waters Edge From the table with the cloth on it at the front it is clear that the picture was being taken on a "special" day.


The picture to the left was almost certainly taken on the same day as that above.

The picture to the left is remarkable in that it is, on the fact of it, identical to the one below, but with a little more detail. It dates from either 1945 or 1946.

Another shot taken, it would seem on the same "day".

A very early picture of the Lido Railway. It is just possible that this is the earliest known picture in existence. 

Please note that Ruislip Online holds copyright to the four pictures shown immediately above.
