Aloha,



Perry's Smorgy on Kuhio has a new name. I'll have to go and see if this carving and the others survived the changeover.

Captain Zack's Bar at the International Market Place in 2004. This place was below the shell of the Trader Vic's.

One of two 1939 panels by Margaret Blasingame at the Board of Water Supply on Beretania Street portray the legend of Kane and Kanaloa. The gods roamed the land together finding fresh water springs for the people. Created as a W.P.A. project, it was restored a few years ago. Also worth seeing is the Juliette May Fraser mural inside the main office.

Good question Ben. I'd really be honored if O.A. would stock them. Some of Bob and Leroy's work is in it.

Where else would be good places to have them on the Mainland? Wacko Soap in L.A? The Mai-Kai giftshop? I don't get to the mainland often, so I don't know.

Retailers, bookstores, and restaurant giftshops that would like to have copies can contact Bess Press directly at
Customerservice@BessPress.com. The Phone number is (808) 734-7159 ext 10.



Rapa Nui representatives at Kualoa Beach in 2000 after the Hokulea canoe's successful trip to Easter Island. It was a very cool ceremony. I was inspired and traveled to Rapa Nui in 2001.

Aloha,

A few posts ago in this thread, I mentioned the 1930's Juliette May Fraser (1887-1983) mural inside the Board of Water Supply. While I was looking for the photograph of the statue at the Royal Hawaiian Hotel hidden in the overgrown folliage, I came across my photo of the mural It's titled "Pure Water—Man's Greatest Need."

Phil, if you can gain entry into the closed Bowl-O-Drome on Eisenberg next to Old Stadium park, you'll find an awesome 50s era kitsch mural on the mauka interior wall depicting monarchy having outdoors fun. It's priceless, needs to be documented, and will no doubt be lost soon. Just to bowl in a classic bobby sox time-machine alley was a real trip, too bad it will go, more narrow-vision loss.

Yeah, I live near there...



That one's been on my list for quite a while now. I've never been to gain entry tried a few times over the last years. I'm inspired and will try again on Monday.

Aloha,



Another mural, a more contemporary one at the Deep End Bar in the Maile Ohana Sky Court Hotel off of Kuhio Avenue. You have to try their rum based 'Tree Smacker' cocktail when you go there. Three will have you smacking trees on the walk home... Happy hour 'til 6:30. Divey prices, colorful customers...I do like it. If you stay at the hotel, ask the front desk for a 1/2 price off drinks coupon...

Outtake from my book Waikiki Tiki: Art, History and Photographs. After the Tahitian Lanai and the Waikikian became a construction / storage lot. After I took the shots of the last Edward M. Brownlee main lobby carving (as shown in my book,) it disappeared. This statue was left in it's place. Where is the old work now and also where is the homage statue. Additionally who carved it?

Aloha,

Just a quick update!

Waikiki Tiki: Art, History and Photgraphs is available on
Http://Amazon.com and there are five nice reviews! If you'd like to write one that would be much appreciated.

Http://Besspress.com is having a 30% off sale until the end of the month of December not only on my book, but all of their other titles.

I'm taking some TC people on a Waikiki Tiki wiki wiki walking tour later in the day. That's always fun! Mahalo Nui Loa!



Styrofoam Tiki at the Town and Country Surf Shop at Ward Center around 2002. They said it was part of a Quicksilver promotion some years before...
