Guys, some new members, especially who are also older Tiki veterans, might not be too familiar with that fandangled computer posting thang. A good suggestion, but it could have been worded more supportively.



I was trying to post a photo yesterday. Isn't there a way to post photos that are stored elsewhere using a link?
Sorry about getting off topic, but I just thought I'd point out that this board works differently than others.

Here is a new postcard I got from the Luau Restaurant in Miami Beach. That's the owner Trader Syd being served up a frosty-chilly from a sarong clad siren.

Siren is right! That's a great photo, DC, and I've never seen it before. That server is iconic of the right kind of fake-polynesian wahini of American tiki restaurants of the 60s, (in my book).

Not really a drink girl, but I didn't know where else to put this picture. I found it in a book titled "The Professional Approach to Journalistic Photography" by Sellmeyer and Moore, copyright 1967.



The caption in the book says that the props were borrowed from a local department store, but doesn't say where.
