As you can see the image is an illustration so I doubt that it was ever built. That said, I'd still like to know where it was going to be located.

As most of you know 1924 was the height of the 'Egyptian Craze' following the discovery of King Tut's Tomb in 1922.
The 1925 CD has the following entry:
EGYPTIAN SALT WATER SWIMMING CLUB INC, Ben D Harris Pres. G W Simpson Sec, R E Hafer Mgr. 401 Metropolitan Theatre Bldg, 323 W 6th, Phone Trinity 2617.
However, the June 4, 1925 edition of the New Castle News from New Castle, Pennsylvania has the following information:
"Another new swimming palace, which is soon to be opened is owned by the Egyptian Salt Water Swimming Club. The plunge is 100 by 300 feet and is located 900 feet behind the breakers on Exposition."
I didn't find any other mentions.
