Photograph of Band Stand and Promenade, Bangalore from an album entitled 'Views in Bangalore', of the Vibart Collection, taken by Albert Thomas Penn in the 1870s . Bangalore was founded by Kempe Gowda in the early 16th century and became an important fortress under Haider Ali and Tipu Sultan in the late 18th century. The cantonment was founded in the early 18th century and a British garrison established here; the town continued to develop in the 19th century as a military and administrative centre. This view shows the Bandstand and Promenade area.
