Architect and civil engineer. George John Vulliamy was the son of the clockmaker Benjamin Lewis Vulliamy and nephew to the architect Lewis Vulliamy. Designed the charming and inventive ironwork along the embankment: the dolphin (more correctly, sturgeon) lamp posts; the camel or sphinx or swan benches.

He also designed Southwark Park, opened in 1869.
