  1. What a WONDERFUL idea, Sonia....These are ALL so Beautiful. That first one, particularly.....The arthitecture is stunning....But all of these Bandstands are just delightful!
    I wish we had more of them here....! I know there are some, but I cannot recall any in Los Angeles, that I have ever seen pictures of....
    It says a lot about how important "community" is, and how important "music" is, too...!
    Thanks for sharing these, my dear.

  2. What lovely photos! These bandstands are such pretty structures. I wonder if they are used much?

  4. They are all beautiful! There used to be many of those here in the US, but they seem to have fallen out of favor since I was a child.

  8. E são lindíssimos estes coretos. Todos eles.
    E que bom é ouvir a banda a tocar num coreto.
    Infelizmente, por Portugal estão a desaparecer.

  9. Sonia, sempre com idéias e assuntos,tão originais...e que na maioria das vezes mexe com a memória...
    O coreto da Praça De Araras e de Bom Jesus de Pirapóra ,são duas lembranças deliciosas da minha infância...destes só não conheço o de Piratininga...
    Parabéns beijos...
    ótimo...
    P.S
    Vou tentar participar do também ótimo Sky Watch...qualquer dúvida te pergunto por e-mail...

  10. Que boa idéia Sonia!
    Aqui no Brasil estão desaparecendo, também. Prefeito nenhum constroi coreto, porque tem muito esgoto, e água encanada para fazer!!!
    E os coretos existentes estão às moscas. As praças públicas perderam muito do seu objetivo inicial. Muitas nem seguras são mais!!!
    Outros tempos!

  12. Sonia, adoro coretos. Aqui na França ainda existem nas praças e parques, mas antigos. Tem um aqui em Nancy no estilo art-nouveau que é muito lindo, vou te mandar a foto. Adorei o teu blog, muito bonito e interessante.
    Um abraço.

  18. Sonia, when you came to my sites you were welcome. When I came here to follow you "home," I was delighted. I wish all of the world could have the beauty of your pictures and the welcome of our hearts and the delight of knowing you. Have peace in your life and live it long!

  21. Thanks so much Sonia, for your kind words....I would love to see The Oscars with you, too! I wish I could actually see more from my deck than I can, but whatever I CAN see, is kind of fun.....! I think I am a "Peeping Tom" at heart when it comes to The Camera....LOL...(A terrible confession....!)
    I hope the weather holds here and that the predicted "rain" doesn't happen! We'll see.

  22. Sonia, the architecture where you live is stunning. So many old, beautiful buildings and colors...it's not like here in Florida, where they just bulldoze the old to make room for new and often ugly strip malls and condos. It's sad, too.


    Thanks for the link on the sidebar. I hope your readers will join us! :)

  23. I love when you have an idea to showcase one certain topic! These are wondful...such a beautiful place you live!

  24. Sonia, que bonita idéia.
    As fotos ficaram lindas, e a idéia de mostrar os coretos quase extintos, foi genial.
    Acho que algumas cidades do interior ainda preservam esses coretos, mas já não é nem sobra do que foi.
    Tenha uma boa semana.
    Um beijo

    Cheers,

  26. Adoro coretos!
    Também tiro fotos deles quando posso!
    Só não me agradou muito o inglês, talvez porque não domino bem o idioma...
    Fique bem!

  27. These are beautiful....very colorful.

  28. I have never seen so many bandstands before. They are so beautiful.

    They demonstrate the importance of music and public entertainment back in the early 50s and 60s. It's unfortunately that we don't have those anymore.

  29. Sonia, entrei um dias desses e fiquei encantada com suas fotos, adorei os coretos (deu-me até uma idéia de tirar uma foto de um coreto de uma cidadezinha de 4 mil habitantes onde sempre passo uma parte das férias lá: Analândia, pertinho de Pirassununga). Gostei muito também de tudo o que postou sobre cachorros (eu simplesmente acho que cachorro é tudo de bom!). E isto me inspirou a escrever um post sobre a minha cachorrinha. Comentei como minha amiga Cris, do From our home to Yours, que havia entrado num blog super legal e que havia fotos de muitos pets e tal, e para minha surpresa ela disse que te conhecia! Bem resumindo adorei seu blog e voltarei sempre.

  32. I wrote a post on Australian bandstands and created a link to your post. Many thanks.

    Needless to say the Australian bandstands weren't nearly as colourful and as exotic as the ones you photographed. Do you have the dates when yours were built?
