The Bandstand was built in 1938 and my guess is that the bottom photo dates back around that period judging by the old tubular steel raling along the boardwalk. Again, my guess is that the top photo is from the 50s or 60s as the boardwalk railing is made of stones. The top photo is a new discovery to me as I never saw it before. It is always nice to come back to this old Verdun landmark as it marked so much of our youth going back to the 40s, 50s and 60s.

HI Guy,
I remember the bandstand very well, sat through many a concerts. I left Verdun in December of 1960 and the bandstand was still there.
Thanks for bringing that memory back.
