On his way down to the ferry terminal Mr Monkey went through Pioneer Place. He paused to look at the Tlingit totem pole and the 1909 pergola, which was built as a trolley shelter and the entrance to an underground restroom. The totem pole is a replica of the one stolen from the Tinglit village of Tongass. Unusually, the original was erected in honour of a woman, Chief-Of-All-Women, who drowned visiting her sick sister.
