A group of three seated monkeys cast in artificial stone set centrally in front of the parapet at the top of the pavilion (designed by Captain Sandys-Winsch and opened in 1933, when it is shown in George Plunkett's photograph). The monkey on the left is pointing a camera – the central is wearing headphones – while the one on the right holds a telephone.
