Marco Island Historical Photo Album
- An Everglades hunting camp in 1906, a Seminole Indian Village in the 1940's - see how Marco Island looked at the turn of the century.


Historical Swamp Buggy Photos
-- Collier County's early development in the 1930's and 1940's was highlighted by the emergance of strange looking vehicles featuring huge balloon tires, gun racks, and usually sporting an unusual name like "Dirt Dobber or Tumblebug". These buggies were born out of necessity, as there was no effective way to penetrate the vast, boggy mire known as Collier county except for the versatile "Swamp Buggy".

Known as Swamp Buggies, Woods Buggies, and Hunting Buggies, these vehicles were used for everything from Sunday afternoon outings to hunting expeditions into the Everglades.
