AuthorAbout this object
"Mr Arkell wanted to build a factory, many years ago, and chose a spot on Newton Road, Auckland. He had a very large dog, called Barkell who went around visiting all the people in his suburb. When Mr Arkell entered an election to be the person to run the city, he sadly lost. However, he had Barkell to give him more ideas! This is Mr Arkell's story - he lived from 1854-1912 but Barkell was imaginary, though Mr Arkell did have two pet dogs."-Date Made
