Skiing Daredevils, Louise Hays Park, early 1950sPat Pittman

Believe it or not, they used to have water ski shows in Louise Hays Park.  This particular photo shows one of the stunts in the performance: a "back swan from the shoulders" of another skier.  Although I'm not sure, this might be a photo of Pat Pittman and Jimmy Simmonds.  (If I'm wrong, please correct me in the comments below, thanks.)
