(1834-1894) UK businessman and author Archimago: (or the New Zealander on the Ruins of London Bridge. A Satirical Work, Commencing I, Jno, formerly of the U. K. of G. B., etc) (1864 3vols), which uses the familiar image of the New Zealander to frame two visions of London's future: in the first, horseless carriages and flying vehicles manifest the commercial glories of Empire to come; in the second, the New Zealander is given a sight of 1864 rather on the lines of Gustave Doré's famous etching of 1872.
