Alton has, historically, had two bandstands — one very serviceable one (especially after it had significant maintenance work done during the winter), quite cutely, in the middle of the bay.  The top two pictures.

Then this weekend I saw that the ‘Alton Bay Christian Conference Center‘, across the road, had put up their own — diagonally across from the main bandstand. Looks incongruous, if not downright strange. After seeing it I have come to the conclusion that it is indeed possible to have too many bandstands close together. Yes, maybe the Conference Center thinks of theirs as a gazebo. Possible. Just looks out of place. How they got planning permission baffles me.
