Portobello Swimming Club
On the mornings of Wednesday and Thursday the deep-diving medal of this
club was competed for by five members. The depth of water varied from 13
to 18 feet. Mr. Robert Smith was very successful in recovering the
plates from the bottom, bringing up six on the first and two on the
second morning, with which number he secures first honours. The second
place was taken by Mr. J. Wallace James. Mr. Smith, the medallist, is
deaf and dumb.--Scotsman, Aug. 29th.
