This lovely vintage postcard bears the AAA and Quality Courts United logos. While unsent, someone has written the date Nov. 7, 1958 on the back.

I have so much love for this postcard. Isn’t that sign the best? The color, the neon, the shape. Fantastic. The Naples News has a few other images of this unfortunately demolished treasure, noting that it opened in 1952.

Did a little digging and found the dates for Troy L (b. 1901 d.1971) and Florence A Stewart (b.1901 d. 1984). They are buried in the Naples Memorial Gardens. Troy’s plot is listed as Masonic.
