My mom brought up a bunch of photos I took at the Ávalos reunion in 1994, which was a year after they closed the ASARCO plant. Here are some photos of the pool at the Ávalos smelter. It must have been a warm day there since most everyone was in the shade! Sitting here today in Arizona when the temperature is supposed to reach 112 degrees, the pool looks wonderful and inviting. I can just imagine the good times had at the pool by everyone who used it. Click on the photos for a larger view.
