Exotic cast iron bandstand in Prahran

This #bandstand in the #GrattanGardens in #Prahran was built in … nobody knows, just ‘late 19th century’. Very interesting #castiron, almost #MoorishStyle, from the Alhambra, but that #corrugatediron roof rather detracts from the elegance. It’s been moved a couple of times, in the process lost the balustrades, which are back since 2013, but don’t look like the originals ?! Wonder when the last time a band performed there…
