Im hoping to find out a bit of history about the first post office in Naples Florida. . It was located at the end of the historic Naples Pier. Does anyone have a photo or card of the PO? I believe it burned in 1922 although some articles that I have read disagree on that date . Any info is appreciated.

re: Post Office on the Pier in Naples Fl

Here is a list of the postmasters in Naples. The fact there is only one would suggest that the Naples Pier PO was the only one in the area. Which would, in all probability, make the photo the one you want.

Yes I do believe that is the correct PO in the photo. The building burned in 1922/23
Thanks for the info.

Cheryl you may want to see if your local library can get hold of this it may have early photos of the pier.
