The Yankee Clipper in Ft. Lauderdale, besides having the Wreck Bar & the Polynesian Room, also had the Polynesian Lounge with naugahyde drum stools and a great mural. The spiral designs on the cieling beam really set the mural off perfectly. Could that be Thor Heyerdahl on that stool, flirting with another man's date?

Hey all! I am wanting to do a diorama in my home bar using the layered glass method like the Kona Kai. I was wondering if anybody had specs/glass spacing info/lighting tips/etc... any help would be greatly appreciated.

This mural didn't come out of a bar, but a naval base! About 7 years ago Sneakytiki posted that in the mid 90's , when he was stationed in Bremerton WA, it was in the base library. It was first in the enlisted mens center but though it was approved in 1941, it's subject matter, shore leave hijinks, was no longer palatable there when it was revealed in 1942. The artist was Ernest Norling and I found it moved about 4 blocks to the Kitsap Museum. It's about 17'x5'.



and some detail..






a little hard to get good shots that high up on a conference room wall. The original mural was twice as long, with the second half similar subject matter set in the arctic or Alaska. If anyone is interested I could I could post them also.

Curry's was located at 7433 Collins Avenue Miami Beach, FL 33141. It seems to still be vacant-is this possible after all these 7 odd years? Someone needs to check it out! Are the murals still there?

Entirely possible. Google maps shows a single story structure which is entirely boarded-up, and forgotten by time. It is located closer to Sunny Isles & Bal Harbour, not South Beach, so it is not in the red-hot entertainment district, where developers would be more inclined to invest.

Does anyone have a picture of the mural that was in the Hilo Hattie (now gone) at the block in Orange. It was in the room with all the mens aloha shirts. I used to admire it everytime i went in there.

The mural is from a Matson menu.




Back of the card describes the exotic dishes brought back from the South Sea Islands.
