Queen Wilhelmina Stone

Plantation Street was renamed Queen Wilhelmina Avenue to honour this Dutch Queen after her death in 1962. The stone was later placed to commemorate Wilhelmina together with a memorial (last-mentioned was originally located at the Tram Shed in Pretoria). Since 2012 Queen Wilhelmina Avenue has been renamed Florence Ribeiro Avenue.

Between the paving bricks granite tiles are inserted with a Dutch surname engraved on each one. Famous surnames can be found here, specifically those of past architects like Sytze Wierda and Gerard Moerdijk, contemporary architects like Boogertman and Verbeek, and artists like Lynette Ten Krooden. Even your own surname might be found here.
