Bandstand

 

Bandstand, Petersham Park, Sydney, Australia. It was built to commemorate the coronation of Edward VII, King of Great Britain and Ireland, and of the British Dominions beyond the Seas and Emporer of India. 

Restored in 1993, the building consists of a timber and iron structure on a sandstone platform with a slate roof. 

On Saturday, 20 September 1902, in the presence of 10,000 spectators, the Governor of New South Wales, Sir Harry Rawson, officially opened this bandstand.
