21 King Edward VII Bandstand at King’s Square in Saint John, Canada

King’s Square is a small greenspace shaped like a Union Jack. The property was decreed for public use by royal charter in 1785. In 1908, the park’s centerpiece was constructed: the King Edward VII Memorial Bandstand. He reigned the United Kingdom from 1901 until 1910. Notice the cornet perched on top of the copper roof. This symbolizes the project’s benefactor, the City Cornet Band. King’s Square is encircled by several landmarks. These include the Imperial Theatre, Firefighter’s Museum, City Market and Old Loyalist Burial Ground.
