If you look closely you can see two small children
posing in front of the bandstand. When I took this photo, a homeless guy was camped under the shelter of the overhang. The Heritage Foundation
claims it was built in 1914, but the photograph is dated 1912. The North Shore mountains in the background of the old photo appear much closer than in my shot, because the original photographer used a much longer lens than mine. You can see the old English Bay Pier
in the background.
