Local Nazis had a swimming party... (1932)

The China Press, August 1932:
"Local Nazis had a swimming party in the Embankment swimming pool on Thursday night. Guests were a trifle perturbed because the pool tiling is not swastika paneled."

This newspaper frequently snuck in ironic commentary into its brief news section.
