Page 106 2022 Punta Gorda Chamber of Commerce Members & Visitors Guide Photo provided Harry "Pete" Goulding was an internationally known hibiscus hybridizer until his death in 1993. FROM FISHING TO FLOWERS Brought up in the business, Pete began as a "footer," whose job was moving a large gill net's loose end ("foot") to shore once fish were driven into the open net. The net's other end already being anchored to shore. Soon he began keeping the records for Captain Joe's fishing operation, going on to become a book- keeper, and eventually vice-president and secretary of the Punta Gorda Fish Company, one of five on the railroad dock at the foot of King Street (U.S. 41 north) in the 1920s. Pete loved the fishing industry, but his passion became hibiscus hybridization. Available 24/7 - Temporary or Long Term CALL US TODAY FOR A COMPLIMENTARY, NO OBLIGATION ASSESSMENT 941.525.2322 265 E.
