    Mr. Walker's notes form the basis of subsequent researches and consequently of this chronicle. The date of establishment apparently puzzled him as much as it has puzzled the compilers of this present work. Without definite information at a time when many sources of reference were closed owing to war restrictions, Mr. Walker wisely resisted the temptation of jumping to conclusions; he merely ventured the opinion that the date might be that of the building of the old premises in the Borough, known to generations by the sign of The Dog's Head in the Pot where since 1783 an ironmonger's establishment had existed. Modest by comparison with the present buildings of Haywards Limited, they are noteworthy in that here in this ancient and historic part of London associated with such names as Chaucer, Shakespeare, Johnson, Dickens, Harvard and many others, the name Haywards of the Borough asserted itself both as in identification and recommendation.

    Today, only the headquarters of the company are situated in Southwark, but the name as stuck. How that name, known the world over, came to be made it is the purpose of this book to tell.
