Blucher at La Belle Alliance on the evening of the victory of Waterloo. "Messrs. Leggatt, Hayward and Leggatt have much satisfaction," ran an advertisement, "in announcing that this deeply interesting picture is still in their gallery on view." The Duke himself inspected the picture and pronounced it "very good; very good indeed!"
    In 1858, Leggatt, Hayward and Leggatt opened a new gallery in 'Change Alley, where the works of Landseer, Cooper, Eastlake and Ward were displayed. At the same time, W. P. Frith's famous picture The Derby Day, now in the National Gallery, was attracting large numbers to the Cornhill galleries. This side of Edward Hayward's personality explains the high degree of artistic merit he demanded in the many ironwork designs produced in the Union Street foundry. From his time, it had always been the policy of the firm to ensure that this standard is maintained in the belief that a thing need not be ugly to be useful.
    A glance at the illustrations in the early catalogues shows to what pains the Haywards went to perfect their designs.
