return to Burlington Municipal Band History page
This photo taken around 1940 shows the original gazebo style bandstand which stood (we believe) where the present band shell is today.  Paul Zaiser related a story about a band member who had the unnerving experience of having the back legs of his chair break through the rotting floor during a concert.
Old Bandstand in Crapo Park ca. 1940
