Leamington New Zealand – Band rotunda 100 years old ctd.

Two photographs taken 50 years apart – I’m guessing – the black and white would seem, by the clothing, to be WW1 time – well, during the early to mid nineteen tens anyway – and I think comes from a postcard. The colour slide is from around 1960 – from the dress and the hats. Both show the band rotunda in its original position – some 100 metres from the present site. Our POV, similar in both, has Scott Street behind us – looking almost directly east – the current netball courts would be off in the top right of each photo with the present Leamington Bowls building in front of the band rotunda where the tennis courts are in the older image and on the far edge of the bowling green in the 1960s photo.
