Hat of Dr. George Buxton Hardy DDS

Dr. Hardy was the son of George and Emily (Gilby) Hardy of Sheridan, Trafalgar Township. As a young man, he was a teacher, then he opened his practice as a dentist on Carlton Street, in Toronto opposite Maple Leaf Gardens. When he retired, he owned a greenhouse and nursery on the Lakeshore Road at Clarkson (now part of Mississauga) Ontario. Dr. Hardy was a man with quite a zest for life. He never married as his fiancee had died in an plague epidemic. He travelled to England in 1900 which is probably when he bought this "British Made" hat.
