To the south of Bonita and 20 years earlier looking south, North Naples was barely starting to take shape in 1960, the year of Hurricane Donna. That left-to-right (east-to-west) road is Immokalee Road. The elbow at right is the old route of U.S. 41 — hence the nickname Old 41 as it heads toward Bonita. The road grid of Naples Park is easy to spot at middle right, while Palm River is taking shape in the sandy area in the middle. In the distance to the south is the city of Naples. Train tracks can be seen running from the bottom of the picture south toward Naples. Can you find Naples Municipal Airport? (Hint: Look for an X where runways cross.)
