Researcher comments/remarks
This photograph taken from Oxford Terrace in central Christchurch features the Edmonds Band Rotunda. To the right of the rotunda is the Poplar Crescent Shelter. Both of these buildings were donated to the city by philanthropist Thomas Edmonds and are two of his many contributions to architectural history in Christchurch. The rotunda was designed by Victor Robert Hean and built by Neil McGillivrary, opening to the public on 11 November, 1929. In 1989 the Rotunda was converted to a restaurant. The Edmonds Band Rotunda was badly damaged during the 2010-2011 Canterbury Earthquakes and had to be demolished.
