WVM,
Looks like you caught one of the Tiki Gods on film.
Or there was a satanic convention there when you took this.

Dig? Did you say dig? Well, that reminds me of yet another facet unique in Tiki archeology regarding the Palm Springs Tropics:
It used to have the (most likely only) basement bar in Palm Springs, THE CELLAR.


After it flooded, the whole place was filled in with dirt. Now THAT would be an archeological dig. The stairs down to it are behind the wall on the right, in the hallway between what used to be Sambo's (now the Mexican Restaurant) and the Reef Bar. It's a closet now, go and look in it, you see the access.

Now Doug, I am really curious if there is anything left of the Blythe Tropics, you might just encounter tropic blight. It used to be pretty nice, also had an A-frame porte cochere and a Sambo's:



It seems like the had a tall Tiki too, you can make it out on the right of the A-frame, it looks like the one on page 115 of Tiki Modern, with the stick thru the nose.

Here's a map of the Tiki Tropics locations, (plus the Mecca Motel in Anaheim which seemed to have been owned by Ken Kimes also):

I saw the closet inbetween Hawaiianbills and the mexican resterant. The rumor is that private parties were held with celeberties including members of the Rat Pack!!!!!I also heard it was filled with cement
because the motel was slipping!!!!!!!! I love the photo's and history you are adding to this post.

Come on down to the Springs and we will have a cocktail or two and do some digging,DIG?

p.s. The Palm Coloney hotel just reopenned and the art on the wall's in the basement is still their
from the 1930'S when it was a speakeasy and brothel during prohabition!!!!!!!!

Sorry I can't help with the Blythe address. It seems almost certain that the Tropics is not standing anymore, however, it would be of interest to find out what is there now.

The Indio Tropics was still there in '92 (in Indian hands), but it never had an A-frame or much other features. However, several Tikis were still standing, albeit painted, which made the nicest one, a Marquesan, look like he was wearing Blue Jeans. What was remarkable was the fact that the original sign was still in existence:




My ex and my son Diego posing to demonstrate the Jeans look





These babies must have looked wild in the their days of full rootball hairdos!

The Modesto Tropics looks pretty cool in the rendering



but in 1994, the coolest part of it was that it still had (and still has?) its "Tiki" Lounge:




Photographically, all I got out of the Motel were its Tikis, which were kept somewhat simpler than the Palm Springs carvings:



They had been secured with metal bands tied to the building, to keep them from falling over or because of fear of theft.





All in all, Ed Crissman's Tikis showed a really nice style, elegant, modern, and different every time.
