Audience For Band Grows By 500% In A Click Of A Shutter


I have been trying to find out whether the bandstand in Peoples' Park still exists and whether it is the same one that I photographed in the 1960s. Nobody seems to know. Therefore I need to pay a visit next week. This is a scan of the final negative from the strip of six, the audience is a little bigger : but not much.

Ah, early arrivals for the presentation on tractor collectivisation and the next five year plan by the People's Park commissar.

The park was given the name by Sir Francis Crossley who set it out and then gave it to the town in return for guaranteed admittance to the kingdom of heaven.

By the look of all the chairs, they were expecting a large turn out...maybe they're just warming up!

Maybe it is time to rescue the withering rose now all the snow has melted?

I reckon you were too early, a hoard of people probably turned up after you left.

I suppose that's why bandstands became an endangered species.

It makes it more remarkable and artistic to have just the few in the audience. Performance art does not require large numbers. Wonderful photo.

It is an elegant looking structure..I bet it is beautiful on a summers day:)
