From the Flickr page of the National Library of Ireland

I've attached this rather than link it as photobuckets links are proving to be a pain.

I remember the fountain, but, old as I am,
have no memory of the Bandstand.

Nice picture of times past.

Beautiful nostalgic photos. I too seem to remember the fountain in the 40's, although I think the "baluster" top had been removed by that time.
