This monument to '...pioneer Jewish pedlars known as smouse, who traded in outlying and remote country districts' was unveiled on 18 September 1989 as part of the bicentenary celebrations of Graaff-Reinet. Its bronze plaque was stolen by vandals in 2003. The Jewish Board of Deputies then replaced it with a plastic plaque which the municipality has mounted and covered with a protective steel grille. 24 November 2004
