Hamilton Band Rotunda
This band rotunda is a part of Hamilton's history and has been there for as long as I can remember, and I was born and grew up in this town. Unfortunately, today being Sunday and with libraries shut I was unable to find any information about this structure other than that it has been used in recent years as an entertainment facility often for the use of pop-bands, though in years gone by it would have been used by traditional bands to entertain local people, probably on sedate Sunday afternoons, though I must admit I have never been to such an activity.

Jill and I had to rise early the day this photo was taken, and it is a bit of an unusual shot for me because the sun was just rising over the trees across the Waikato River and was shining directly onto the structure illuminating it nicely.
