This print of Sir Charles Hardy was compiled for Mary Louise Booth’s 1867 The History of the City of New York. It shows Hardy in full naval gear, leaning on a cannon and standing in front of a warship. Hardy served as governor of New York from 1755 to 1757 and served as a rear-admiral during the Seven Years War before returning to England in November 1757.
