About this book
From its beginning as a military installation in the Second Seminole War through the postwar booms of the 20th century, Fort Myers has had its share of famous residents and heroes, from Thomas A. Edison to Olympian Al Oerter, from musician Billy Nalle and football Hall-of-Famer Deion Sanders to world-renowned artist Robert Rauschenberg. But beyond being the winter home of such famous residents as the Edisons and Fords, the City of Palms has been fertile ground for local legends, both admirable and notorious. County commissioner "Wild Bill" Towles burned down the county courthouse so he could build a modern one--and got lots of help. Plucky 10-year-old Margaret Mickle set out in a rowboat and got a private meeting with a former president of the United States on demand. Nurse LaVeta Allen defied Jim Crow laws to save the life of a black woman, knowing it would get her fired. Such are the raucous, comical, and touching histories of those who made a difference in Fort Myers.

Banyan Tree Edison & Ford Estate Ft Myers Florida Postcard

banyan, banyan tree, edison, thomas edison, edison
This Postcard features a statue of Thomas Alva Edison standing amidst a humongous Banyan tree on the grounds of the Edison & Ford Winter Estate and Museum. The first Banyan tree in America was planted in 1925 by Thomas Edison here at his winter home in Fort Myers, Florida. It was a small four-foot Ficus Benghalenis when it was given to him and has grown to be the largest in the continental United States (and 3rd largest in the world), growing to an acre in diameter. It is a must-see Florida attraction! The back of the Postcard has a brief description of the historical image, but may be edited or deleted for personalization. Photography by Glenda Motsavage, a Florida-based travel writer and author.
