Now Wanda Rimes Rodriguez of Naples adds her personal insights:
"My parents, Ronnie and Evelyn Rimes, were the owners and operators of the Crayton Cove Standard Oil station in the early 1960s. Below at right is a copy of their business card. Note their phone number in the upper right corner! It was indeed in Crayton Cove, at the corner of 12th Avenue South and Eighth Street South.
"The picture is of my daddy at the station in his uniform. The calendar on the wall behind him is hard to make out, but it is either 1963 or 1964. Obviously it was a slow day, as he was messing with his guitar, but life in Naples was generally lived at a slower, gentler pace in those days.
"Very few people are left in Naples today who still remember the old station being down there.
Seeing the picture postcard in the paper really made my day!
"By the way, my father passed away in 1981 but my mother is still with us."
