Display: Carr Coral Collection
Featured in our display case this month is the Carr Coral Collection. This collection was donated by Mrs. Thomas Carr. Her late husband Tommy was a scuba diver for over 30 years and was one of the original founders of the St. Petersburg Underwater Club. Mr. & Mrs. Thomas Carr owned and operated Carr Enterprises, a metal fabrication shop in Homosassa. He designed and built many items for locat fisherman. Come and see beautiful examples of pillar, lettuce, fire, finger, and brain coral, along with a spiny oyster. All coral was found near Marathon in the Florida Keys; the oyster was found off of St. Petersburg at about 110 feet.
