White City : Old Bandstand?

Hamilton Township Public Library Local History Collection

The caption on this photograph, circa 1932, indicates it shows the former bandstand in the defunct White City Amusement Park.  The picture posted on 2/15 shows the bandstand under construction.  That structure is architecturally different from the one pictured above.  It has four columns and a drastically different roof line.  The picture below of the crowd on the midway depicts structures architecturally more compatible with the structure depicted above.  I am of the strong opinion that the picture above is miscaptioned and with geographical location is most likely one of the structures pictured below. UPDATE:  The image below depicts a scene from White City on the Lake in Cleveland, Ohio, not White City Park in Hamilton, NJ.
