This postcard of the Band Rotunda in The Square was possibly taken to mark the opening of the Post Office (corner of Main Street East and The Square). Note the flags and crowds of people. The Band Rotunda featured here was the first of two built in The Square. Constructed in 1899, this incarnation was shifted to the Victoria Esplanade in 1907. A second larger band rotunda was then built. It was demolished in 1956 to make way for the Hopwood Clock Tower.
