At the beginning of the 20th Century, the US decides to turn the tables on Mother England and turn its former motherland into a conquered territory. The American conquerors quickly get to work, importing architects and sculptors who make the city of London look just like New York.

In the February 1902 issue of Harmsworth's Magazine, Londoners got a peek at what their city might look like post-American invasion. The article mainly imagines that the Americans would mashup New York's landmarks with London's, although there are some grand images as a result. I can only imagine the horror Brits felt upon gazing at George Washington's statue in Trafalgar Square, or their beloved pubs being taken over by quick-lunch New York diners.
