Lion de Waterloo

Justly considered one of the most important battles in history, Waterloo didn't just give its name to the famous Waterloo train station in London. There are numerous streets, squares, boulevards and avenues bearing the name of this former village, now part of the Brussels suburbs. There are undoubtedly thousands, even tens of thousands! One thing is sure, through the English-speaking regions of the world, there are an estimated seventy (including 35 in the United States alone) towns or villages bearing the name that became famous in 1815.

A few years previously, an English group - the Kinks - had a hit with "Waterloo Sunset"...
