Victorian Bandstand at Dayton State Hospital, 1960 (DDN_State_Hospital_04)

Original caption from Sept. 1960: “Landmark Coming Down! Band concerts once entertained the Dayton public here. But now another landmark is falling. The century-old Victorian bandstand at Dayton state hospital is being torn down because costs of repairing it would be excessive. The structure hasn’t been used for years except by patients who like to sit there. (Staff photo by George Adams)”
