  • One stop that anyone who lives in or travels through PE is this city library, built in 1901, in classic British architecture, with a stain class dome roof, the beauty captive all. Inside the books are 3 stories high and follow the dome shape. This library is at the heart of Port Elizabeth with all the records, being stored here, the daily newspapers had at one time a room that dedicate to travelers who would retire upstairs, reading the daily news. It is home to an art work of Sir Thompson Bain
