These are just the sorts of images I always dream of seeing, and so rarely get to -- well-lit pictures of the interior of a Polynesian restaurant, right when it was new. Getting to see contemporary stories from news clippings adds even more, and artists renderings of tiki places are some of my favorite tiki art. Thanks so much for opening up your mother's scrapbooks for us, these are wonderful!

Thanks Humuhumu, you inspired me with your passion for tiki and your incredible photography of various places. It is my pleasure to contribute what I can to Tiki Central & Critiki. As Bigbrotiki said; these places may be gone but the images will live on for posterity. I'm glad that I found all of you.
Ojaitimo Tim

What a joy to see this! I really dig those purples running riot in the East Indian Room. Ojaitimo Tim, your mom is a designer after my own heart.

The rendering of the Sadie Thompson Room looks very shimmery and sparkly. I'm going to google "Sadie Thompson" right now to get the scoop on who the room is named after.

I photographed the Trade Winds site and talked to one of the salesmen at the RV lot that is there now.
His parents and friends used to go to the Trade Winds often and that they had seen Don Ho perform at the Trade Winds a number of times back in the sixties. He may dig up a picture or two of them.

The high rise buildings you see in the distance were also Bud's projects from the seventies and eighties.


I found this odd pole on top of the fence made of telephone poles and it looks like it was carved once but I'm not sure. If it is natural tiki so much the better.




The sign for the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Highway is ironic in I think that it led to the downfall of tiki in the United States.


I also photographed the Lobster Trap in Oxnard which has a few items from the Trade Winds.
