Kirby, I 'm glad you are enjoying it. I'll just have to sign your copy of Waikiki Tiki: Art, History and Photographs for you when next I go to the mainland. Shouldn't be too long.

The Hawaiiana Hotel, looking down Beachwalk toward the beach! The hotel sign is gone but the Tiki remains!

Aloha.

The current status of the Hawaiiana is UNCHANGED. It is apparently being used as student housing. The cafe is still open and most of the Tiki remain. I will post if something changes.

As you know I love collecting paper. In this case, I got it from Ata himself! Arthur Lyman's business card! Dig the yellow bird! I did photoshop out the phone number in case the family is still living there, btw...

Aloha,



This neat sticker got sent to me after I caught a quick glance of their van in Waikiki and emailed them. I'd meant to include them in Waikiki Tiki, but forgot.

Climb Aloha Check 'em out for rockclimbing while on Oahu!

Beretania St. I believe... Havn't been for ages but it used to be killer. Some guy actually found The Queen's music stand there a few years back, in mint cond. for about $100, wants millions for it. Ah, timing!
