Pyramid plaque

The plaque on the Donkin Pyramid reads:
To the memory
of one of the most perfect
of human beings
who has given her name
to the Town below
These were the words of Sir Rufane Donkin in remembering his wife when he named Port Elizabeth after her.


  1. Oh! That is sooooo romantic! I kind of took the name of PE for granted before but now I see it in a totally different light. So beautiful.

  2. The Egyptian pyramids in North Africa and the Donkin Pyramid in South Africa. What's the connection?? Is this one for the TWILIGHT zone???? WoooOOOooo!
