The plaque commemorates Frederick Matthias Alexander who was the pioneer of the "Alexander Technique" which he developed in Melbourne at the end of 19th century.  Alexander who was born near Table Cape.

The technique is now taught throughout the world and focuses on the unconscious habitual ways in which we use ourselves - our patterns of posture, movement and responses to stressful situations - and teaches us to have conscious control over these aspects of ourselves.

The original plaque has been replaced.
