In the late 1950s, this was the view looking northwest toward the original Gordon River Bridge on U.S. 41 East. The development area to the left on the south side of the bridge is the predecessor of today's Tin City. To its right is Boat Haven, the predecessor to part of today's Naples Bay Resort. The Naples Depot is seen to the left of center; if you look hard you can see the railroad tracks coming right to it. The rest of that part of the city looks like a rural area.
