We were very excited recently to discover this new 1976 view of the Wreck Bar. The 70s took its toll, especially with those swag lights:





It probably should be noted on this thread that The Castaways was designed by the same architect who designed the Mai-Kai, Charles McKirahan. It seems like most everything we love about Modern South Florida sprang from his mind: the Sea Shore resort, Ireland's Inn, the Bay Harbor Continental, etc. Too many of them gone! Who's got the time machine this week?

M & M,

I have two oversized postcards from that 70's era of decline.

First one shows the entrance sign.



Another view of the Wreck Bar in a state of well...wreckage!



The back of the card still shows decent graphics.



Interesting signature on the back, it looks like these were home made by Danny, the guy in the motel print shop.

Nice stuff, DC. The late 60s / early 70s party til 5am has taken a toll on the old Wreck Bar -- you can tell they even had to reupholster all the bar stools. And it looks like Liberace was put in charge of the decor!

I just found this today at a local antique store. My first guess was a long match stick box but it is absent of a strike so that's not it. Maybe a box for a hankie? I had to get it of course!! I was donating some items so the owner gave it to me for free!!

Postcard shown for scale

Could be for the complimentary shoe shine cloth many fine motels gave away in your room.
