Great, Great, GREAT!

Lots of people in those pics, which makes them all the more nostalgic. We really should get our collections together and see if someone wants to publish a small picture book on the theme.

Even though I posted it in another thread, it might be good to include the slide showing the Coco Palms room that Filslash digitized:

Cool pictures!

I stayed at the King Kamehameha on the Big Island in May of this year and the decor hasn't changed much. The lobby in particular is a '70s time warp--I kept expecting to see the Brady family pop up somewhere--but with all sorts of Polynesian artifacts and original portraits of the Hawaiian royal family. Very cool. As with most hotels, though, the rooms look much bigger in the brochures than they are in real life.

Mahalo nui loa Sabu fo' da pix of Hawai'i how it used to and still SHOULD be!!!
Your postcards took me right back to my days as a VERY happy child in Kane'ohe - Our place used to look a LOT like these postcards... I still remember fondly our garden tikis (which made the journey with us by ship to California), the bamboo mats and matting everywhere, and our bamboo mat and monkeypod bar.

Fond, warm, happy memories. Thanx Sabu! _ _

Man, now THOSE are great pix. Mahalo for posting those. Makes me really wish that someone would figure out time travel.
The mix of classic Polynesian and Mid Century Modern just works so perfectly.

Using postcards in advertising your products and services is good. It can easily catch people's attention and what you have to say is already written in the postcard. postcard printing service

I have always enjoyed the great photos on this post from Sabu and Puamana. I decided it was time to freshen it up a bit with some new images, as many of the old ones have been lost to the dreaded Red X.

This is from the Hawaiiana Hotel.


Some rooms from the Hawaiian Village Hotel.




From the famous Waikikian.


Some great rooms found at the Kona Inn. Check out all of that great art on the walls.









These are from the Hanalei Plantation.













From the Kauai Surf Hotel.


The Holiday Isle Hotel.




Thats all for now, will try to post some more later.

I would love to own those headdress lamps!

Anyone own these or come across any during their collecting?

And you guys are awesome with all the imagery . Sabu and DustyCajun it blows me away the stuff you post--wish we could compile it all into a book.
