Here's a postcard from probably the 80s showing the entrance to Trader Dick's after it was moved into the Nugget Casino, but before it had it's final renovation that included the giant aquarium.

Cavemoai,

Thanks for posting the illustration. Here are a few Trader Dick's photos posted by Bamboo Ben on Facebook.

One of the dinning rooms with the Last Chance Joe character.



A letter to Eli Hedley from Dick Graves thanking him for the design work.




And a brochure image of a similar dinning room shown in the picture above

Scored a “Last Chance Joe” mug recently. Still quite a few of the standard Trader Dicks tiki mugs around these parts also.
