Lucien Weissenburger is attributed as the architect of this clever pavilion, which stands in the gardens of the former J. B. E. Corbin estate.  Designed around 1904, the structure was originally built with a subterranean level containing grottos for fish; a ground floor featuring windows lined with fish-tanks; and an upper deck sporting a glass canopy.  The fish and tanks were removed in later years.  In 1999, the building underwent a major restoration, allowing it to house fish once again.  Photograph taken in 1982 by Howard J. Partridge.
