Thank you to Jim Fleming, Edinburgh for telling me more about the bandstand in this photo.

Bandstands

"The bandstand in this photo was removed, along with  most of the other exhibits to the Exhibition, to Marine Gardens in Portobello.

Another bandstand was erected in Saughton Park in 1909 and it is this bandstand which is currently in the City of Edinburgh store and which will hopefully be re-instated in the not too distant future."

Bandstand in Storage

Saughton Park Bandstand, in storge

"Here is a photo of the Edinburgh bandstand that is in storage.

But this is not the bandstand that used to be at Saughton Park.

"It is the one that used to be in The Meadows.

Alan Maloney, Stenhouse, Edinburgh:  December 31, 2011 + January 3, 2012

The bandstand in The Meadows was dismantled in 1950.  The parts are still in storage now, in 2012.
