I would think that this is more like 1970-75. The bandstand and pier are in far too good a condition.

I recall playing on this monstrosity in the 60s. It was OK in the loud bits, but when there was a quiet passage, you could here the clackety-clack of the turnstile below in the ladies loo. There was no protection against wind which used to blow the music off the stand.
