This is George Dummert. I have written about this man before but forgot I had seen this pictures.
George Dummert arrived in Carleton Place, Ontario with his wife and children from England around the year of 1872. Dummert was a baker and built a home and shop on the land that would later house Patterson’s Furniture and Robbie Probert’s building. Bread was delivered from the Dummert’s Bakery Shop to Ashton and Franktown one day a week. Those deliveries alone would take up the entire day.
One of George’s specialties was “Bulls Eye” toffee. For many years it was offered at the St. James Anglican Church’s yearly Christmas bazaar. Extremely popular with the local crowd, it was hand pulled, and took a lot of time and skill to make. What happened to George’s body after he died? Click here to find out.
