This Collier County News photo shows, from left, Maynard Schryver, Mamie Tooke, Leonard H. King and John Meli, the now-retired doctor who submits this clipping for our readers, admiring the equipment. The original caption says the marvel, donated by the Betz Corp. of Indiana, was to be put on display at Tooke's Bank of Naples.
