Looking Back: Historical photos, postcards from Naples

Snow? No, it's white sand in The Moorings, Naples, in 1964. Bob Lindabury, former owner of a namesake garden center, parked his 1959 Ford Fairlane to check progress on his home (not shown) under construction — the first house on Harbour Drive. The Ford was the company vehicle. This view looks west toward U.S. 41. Lindabury says the lot was shown to him by Realtor John R. Wood, who was driving a Jeep and joked that Harbour Drive then should have been called Hardly Drive. Gunshots from hunters were common sounds on weekends, Lindabury recalls.
