Not every memorial featured here is attractive. That's not the point of the blog. Here's one such example. The Ira W. Brannan Memorial Pool.
Most residents of Casper Wyoming just refer to this as the Washington Park swimming pool. It's an outdoor pool, not visible in this photograph, that has long served Casper. Indeed it is no doubt the oldest outdoor swimming pool in the city but is still in use as it gets heavy use.
So who was he?
I have no idea and wasn't able to learn who he was.
He was likely a veteran of World War One, given the age of this pool. Washington Park used to feature a variety of caissons right next to the pool that were probably associated with the dedication, but which have since been moved to Ft. Caspar. Mr. Brannan's name remains on the pool, but as to he was, well at least to me that's a bit of a mystery.
