Band enclosure, now bathing pools 1925. By Adshead and Ramsey. Dragged render to
walls, metal roofs. Enclosure of depressed horseshoe shape projecting seaward from
the Parade. Parallel to the Parade is a glazed wall with fluted shafts supporting
the top beam, embellished with imbricated tenops. This is terminated by rectangular
pavillions with heavily swept roofs. A conventional classical cornice is common to
the front. Plainer curved walls embrace the changing rooms (to the east) and
restaurant (to the west) to either side of the bandstand. This has short flank walls
crowned by baskets of fruit and flowers and with applied Greek theatrical masks, and
is treated as an open temple of oval plan. The low conical roof is supported by slim
paired columns of an attenuated Tower of the Winds type. Flat ceiling with decorative
plasterwork. A witty and attractive building which forms a foil to the same architects'
Pier Pavilion to which it is a close neighbour.
