Retro Buccaneer Advertisement

Here's the last of the mid-fifties ads I've been running. It's a pre-Football Bucs image of the Buccaneer. Has the appearance of the buccaneer image dropped off in local advertising since the arrival of the Bucs? And "Sleepy Lagoon Yacht Harbor"? What a name!

Grove Stand

Continuing with the series of mid-1950s ads, is this ad for a citrus grove. I am guessing that this gentleman, who owns a residential citrus tree care business, belongs to the family mentioned in the ad above. The link contains some early photos and is worth a click.
