Here is a vintage view of an icon of all Southwest Florida, the Naples Pier. Most of the vacant lots are now full and the homes are much larger today. The former Haldeman House, now restored and moved to Bonita Springs, is to the immediate left, or south, of the pier. The year: 1968. Courtesy of Yvette and Greg Whitaker, from the aerial photo archives of their late father, Les, who was a prominent local Realtor. Readers with memorabilia to share are encouraged to call the Perspective editor at 263-4773.
