View of the landing place of the Star Packets at the Royal Terrace Pier, proposed development and gardens, Milton-on-Thames, Gravesend, Kent

Wilds, Amon Henry (1790-1857)
NOTES: Wilds provided a plan for a 'new town' at Milton-on-Sea, Gravesend, around 1830. J. C. Loudon designed the terrace gardens in 1835 and Harmer Street, running up from the Pier, was built in 1836 as part of the grand scheme which never came to fruition. The pier itself was opened in 1844 (engineer J. B. Redman).

Bow Bridge, Central Park, New York

Vaux, Calvert (1824-1895)
NOTES: A competition for the design of Central Park was held in 1858 as a consequence of Calvert Vaux's campaign against the plan previously adopted. The winning plan submitted by Calvert and Frederick Law Olmsted took almost twenty years to complete. Vaux was responsible for the architecture and designed most of the 46 bridges built in the park.

Freret, James (1838-1897)
NOTES: The Moresque Building, built for J. O. Barelli, was the largest, and perhaps finest, cast-iron building in New Orleans as well as one of the most ornate commercial buildings in the United States. It was built to house rental stores and a hall and rooms for concerts. It was destroyed by fire in 1897.
