Entitled: The Art of Swimming and Diving

Below the pictures reads:

The photographs on this page give the different positions adopted in diving and swimming, and also some of the fancy tricks which we can learn as soon as we can swim easily. How graceful it is possible to look in diving from a height is shown in 1, where the body is in almost a straight line. Diving feet first from a height is shown in 2. Here the diver will go deeper than in diving head first. A Swedish dive is being taken in 3, and a high dive in4, while the way to dive in at the start of a race is shown in 5. No time must be lost in coming to the surface with this dive. Three of the positions the swimmer assumes in the breast-stroke are shown in sequence in 17, 8, and 14. Swimming on the back is shown in 7, the trudgen, or Indian, stroke in 6, the side-stroke in 10, and paddling on the back to rest the arms in 11. Of the many fancy feats, we see, in 9, the torpedo float; in 16, the dead man’s float; in 12 the nautilus; in 13, turning a somersault; and in 15, swimming like a crab.
