Bandstands of Britain
Available in Stock
From Aberdeen to the Isle of Wight, bandstands grace our parks, squares and seaside promenades. Illustrated with colour photographs throughout, this book charts the history of these exuberant wrought-iron structures, and examines how, after decades of neglect, many have been restored to their original glory – in the case of the one in Beckenham, South London, with the aid of former resident David Bowie. A gazetteer gives the location, date, manufacturer and condition of every bandstand in the country.
