Reclining in the shade of a rotunda, or being serenaded from a bandstand, everyone has fond memories of sunny days in parks and pavilions. Criss-crossing the country, from Albany to Toogoolawah, travellers can find little gems that adorn the land. Bandstands, pavillions and rotundas stand testimony to the optimism and civic mindedness of our pioneering ancestors. In this lovely illustrated book, Alison Rose finds pavilions in big cities and tiny townships, reveals the history surrounding them and their locations. A beautiful book and a great present for anyone interested in local history. They can read about Cheer Up Societies, gold rushes, revelry, architecture and civic pride.
