Great old photos Murph, thanks for posting. I love this one with the ladies perusing the drink menus.

They are looking at this menu (from Mimi's website):









I have never seen that other menu that is laying down at the head of the table. How about a close up of that one.

Murph,

Nice shots of the menu, glad that you grabbed the images.

I have never seen that one before. It looks substantial.

Here is another menu from the Waikiki Room from ebay.


Cool drink list


I have seen this Tiki figure before, on the Georgie Rudin's Tropics menu for one.


Does anybody have any background info on this Tiki?

Not me. I have only seen it used by those two establishments, of which the Waikiki Room used it more often. Maybe by dating the menus we can determine who borrowed it from whom? Both were Pre-Tiki establishments, and this is a very cool, modernist Tiki.

Also similar to this - possibly one of the prototype logo tikis for Tiki Gardens in Florida:

WTF? It really is a disservice to all if pix from years past are not available.
