I drove by the Trade Winds former location yesterday and noticed this bulldozer had started doing some work. Looks like something may be happening soon. I really hope they are planning to preserve the trees. Anyone heard anything?

This is a photo from Annie Ellis on the left with her mother, two sisters and David Ellis next to the trailer that Richard Ellis stayed in next to the site while carving dozens of Tiki for the Trade Winds.

Ojatimo,

Wow, that is a great old photo, thanks for posting. Some very impressive Tiki carving.

Bigtikidude,

There are quite a few of these great old Tiki Archeology threads that were started by Bongo, Sabu, Puamana and others before the advent of Locating Tiki. I agree, it would be nice to move them if another thread has not been started yet.

I remember that place from when I was a kid. When did it stop being Don the Beachcombers? Wish it was still there. L&L Hawaiian BBQ on the other side of oxn blvd just can't measure up.

In the distance are the palm trees at the former location of the Trade Wind's restaurant in Wagon Wheel Junction.

I was just enjoying the Flickr photostream of "Conejo Through The Lens" and found this nice vintage image of a local (Thousand Oaks, CA) family dining at the Trade Winds restaurant in Oxnard. http://www.flickr.com/photos/conejovalley/4990941459/in/photostream/

The Burns family at Trade Winds Restaurant, Oxnard
From left to right: Mary Burns, Paul Burns, Gail Burns, and Bob Burns at Trade Winds, circa 1963. Donated by Dawn Burns Bloom. Conejo Through the Lens, Thousand Oaks Library Special Collections Photo ID # CTLblo01.



Behind the cobra chair it appears that wine bottles with holes drilled in their bottoms are mounted end-to-end on heavy ropes suspended from the ceiling and are separated by round cork fishing net floats. An interesting decorative idea...

And if anyone knows where I can score a nice condition TW menu, grog list, ashtray, etc. please let me know!

Enjoy!

Great find - really digging that photo and the bottle/cork partition is really interesting...

The Hawaiian Room in Bellflower has the bottle/cork thing going on. It is very, very cool. It's on 9875 Alondra Blvd in the city of Bellflower. Very cool place, real chill, and the drinks are cheap.
Here's a pic I took a couple of years ago

Aloha!
I discovered an undocumented image of a Polynesian restaurant while sorting a batch of vintage 35mm slides last night. Dated May 1964 this color slide doesn't really show much at first glance but upon close scrutiny reveals this is the Trade Winds and is of early vintage. Taken at the lagoon area shortly after the restaurant's initial opening, you may spot the Trade Winds signature tiki (hiding in shadows) and a Richard Ellis Moai style head too. Pretty cool! Without this thread with many great photos already posted, I probably wouldn't have put two and two together and identified this image. Enjoy!
