Baird Hardware, founded
by Eberle Baird, was one
of the most important
businesses in Gainesville
for more than 90 years.
Formed in 1890 and
liquidated in 1981, it
was the largest
hardware house in
Florida around 1900.
Baird's was particularly
known for carrying
everything under the
sun, and this
photograph seems to
capture that. Toy cars,
scooters of all sizes,
