AbstractHistoryArchive Description

The 'Flaneur' muses on Sydney's recent political and social occurrences. He reflects on the need to extend the New South Wales railway system into the city of Sydney, and he continues his comments (made throughout his October columns in the Empire) about the recent political upheavals involving Henry Parkes whom he dubs 'the member for nowhere'. The 'Flaneur' also informs the public about a US-patented 'life-preserving coffin' and humorously ponders some of the ramifications of such a product.
