It’s about time


The city of Brampton is finally talking about getting rid of the old bandshell at nearby Chinguacousy Park.  This is so overdue that I can’t believe it might actually be torn down.

Canada Day 2006

I took this picture July 1, 2006 during the Canada Day celebrations.  Of course, we’re looking at the back of the bandshell but the flag was bright and the building didn’t actually look half bad from this angle.  The actual stage was a mass of pigeon shit and graffiti.  Contrast it with this shot taken last week after the Remembrance Day ceremony.

Memories, Like Flags, Fade Over Time

Yeah, there’s a structure worth saving.  I won’t hold my breath waiting for City Council to actually come up with a timeline but at least they’re talking.
