Bandstand at English Bay

Alexandra Park and English Bay Beach, 1916; Vancouver City Archives, Be P93; https://searcharchives.vancouver.ca/english-/bay-beach-10.

I added a new page on two bandstands at English Bay.

The bandstand in Alexandra Park was not the first one in that area.

For several years between 1901 and 1914, there was another nearby bandstand, just across the street on Beach Avenue.
