From Club 41: It's a treasure: Dorothy Caruthers writes "Everytime I see your pictures of collections of matchbooks from old restaurants around town, I wish you had this picture. Now you do." In the early 1950s, Club 41 was one of the first restaurants in Naples, located just east of Four Corners on the north side of U.S. 41. It was small, very nice and with great Italian food. Joe Ray played piano, Joe Cleary tended bar and "as advertised," it was air-conditioned! The story goes that Mamie Tooke from the Bank of Naples took her only two employees to Club 41 on the last working day of each month. They had dinner there, then returned to the bank, prepared the monthly statements and could not go home until every Naples "banked" penny was accounted for. This was often 1 or 2 a.m. Imagine my surprise, in 1978, when my 80-year-old mother handed me this ashtray and said, "I didn't know how to tell you I took this the last time we went there." I hugged her. It's a treasure.
