Brochure Beauties #3: Caribbean Gardens in Naples, Florida

Here’s another 1950s gem of a travel/tourism brochure. This is for Caribbean Gardens in Naples, Florida, a nature preserve/zoo created by the late Dr. Henry Nehrling in the 1910s, and it was originally known as  H. Nehrling’s Tropical Garden and Arboretum.

As the brochure explains, Nehrling’s gardens had become neglected following his death in 1929, but were revived in 1954 by Julius Fleischmann.

In the late ’60s the Gardens began the transformation into a zoo, and the facility is now known as Naples Zoo at Caribbean Gardens. You can still get there by following the Tamiami Trail, aka Route 41.
