Looking forward to what more you find on those discs.





Spence Weaver of the Spencecliff Corporation at the Tahitian Lanai, Waikiki in Hawaii. I tried to clean it up but you can just see the carving in the background...




WAY COOL Phillip!

Aloha,



Happier days at the Hawaiian Hut!! Check out the detail of the carving of Maui pulling up the islands with his magic fishhook.

I'm still really annoyed about the loss of the A-Frame (and the whole darn thing, really) at the Ala Moana Hotel's Hawaiian Hut South Seas Village showroom.

Perhaps it's just that I have had a stye (for the last day or so) over my right eye. Perhaps not.

Aloha,

Hmmm, found where one of the Hawaiian Hut panels of "Maui pulling up the islands" ended up. Have to get a pic in the next few days when the light is right...

Here's something I'm doing some research on...

A tourist place shopping place near Ala Moana Center called the "Hawaii Manufacturing Center." This ad from 1972 seems to have promise.



Descriptions of say it was full of the kind of art we like. Anyone went there in the day?

Huge, irreplaceable loss, as it was one of the best & last remaining examples of that style.
What is there now?

I don't know where it has ended up. Yet. But I very much doubt it is at Gecko's house.

This ad ran in around 1971...



Hmmmm, I wonder what scent these refills were? And how do you add them to a burnt candle for hours of more enjoyment?

It looks like it could have been an oil lamp and not a candle. A very cool moai oil lamp.

Good thought Ace. Anyone have one of these Easter Island oil lamps? I have never seen one (plenty candles) but assume it would be ceramic...



Royal Hawaiian Mai Tai bar and their award from the 2009 Mai Tai festival... Ask for the 1944 'Trader Vic' version. Bong and I recommend it...

Aloha,

Sharp eyes Freddie! It seem they were quite a big deal in the day assuming they had the pull to get special tags on the HIP originals...



Ulu Mau Village-Ala Moana location from 1965 from a microfilm scan... You can see a much better color shot of this giant in Waikiki Tiki.

Btw, a soft opening at the International Market Place of "Tiki Town" a new outdoor bar/restaurant is happening later today. I was by Wednesday as they were setting some of it up! I'll take pics later...

Maybe more wax inserts?

Aloha,

Well done Freddie! Nice catch from 'Tiki finds' It seems Bongofury owns it.



Well, it seems "Tiki Town" isn't ready to open yet... I'll keep you informed.

First of all, I'm enjoying your book immensely Phil. I go to sleep at night dreaming of old Honolulu and the grand tikis that lived there.

Secondly, my parents had one of those tiki candles when I was a kid. It was the coolest thing but I forgot all about it until now.

Finally, I will be in Waikiki in a little over two weeks and look forward to going to Tiki Town and seeing the other historic tikis in your book.

Mahalo

Aloha Phillip, purchased your book a couple weeks ago to do some research, then stumbled upon Tiki Central this week, and now I find that you are on this forum! Thank you for a wonderful, fascinating book.
