Band By The Sand

Here you stand at the end of the Central Promenade, looking at the start of the North Promenade (opened in 1890), which is marked on our archive image from 1916 by two stone pillars, topped by gas lamps.  The remains of the one on the left-hand side still exist today.

The bandstand, in the middle distance, was opened in 1901 and was the site of many concerts.
