A boy stands by the Band Rotunda, with the newly constructed Post Office, on the corner of Main Street, behind. This first Band Rotunda was built in The Square in 1899. It was shifted to The Esplanade in 1907, and replaced by another, which was demolished to make way for the Hopwood Clock Tower in 1956.
