Mr Monkey carefully inspected the Victoria Prospect Tower before climbing up it, and wondered who the odd face over the dating panel belonged to. The tower was built in 1844, partly to provide work for labourers during an economic slump. Mr Monkey let Mr Rik take him up the 52 steps to the top of the 40 foot high tower. At the top he very carefully looked over the parapet to see how high 12.2 metres was.
