Finally, a picture of the old band stand on the north side of Monroe Street between the Elevator and Diamond Alley. The band stand was probably built sometime in the late 1920's or early 1930's. No reference was found in the Advance as to the time of construction. The brick building to the extreme right is the Trimm Building and today it houses Curves. The restaurant with the Coca-Cola sign is Ed's Inn and today the Flower Basket flower shop sits at this location. The little building to the left is the old lunch stand (see Archives 8-05), which stood just to the east of the Elevator. From the late 1800's to the 1940's, Bangor has prided itself with band concerts held downtown. It was often quite an event and drew several hundred people for Wednesday and Saturday concerts. Many people still living can remember performing here, but most had forgotten this memorable location until asked about it. The young man in the photo is Elmer Owen. The two ladies are unidentified. The photo was taken about 1934.
