This is the Thomas Edmonds Band Rotunda. The dome is being saved but the rest of the building is being demolished. I wonder if they will rebuild it? I hope so, it was an iconic Christchurch building and it would be wonderful to have it back in the new Christchurch. I never got to dine at the restaurant that was in the rotunda (The Retour). I always meant to, but just never did.
