Abstract

‘The Coming Man’s Arrival’ is one of Dunedin Punch’s better-known images, drawing attention to the arrival of Chinese gold miners in Otago. These miners were invited by the Dunedin Chamber of Commerce in the hope that they would replace those who had been lured by the promise of better and more plentiful gold on the West Coast. Dunedin Punch first appeared on 27 May 1865. On 1 September 1867, it changed its name to the Otago Punch.
