Tikicoma,

Nice score on the postcard. So if I understand this correctly, the sign started out with two Tikis flanking it, then it went down to one Tiki, and now there are none?

Yea Dusty there are two on the card (guessing the 70's) one on the posts from 2007&2010 and zero now (google streets Sept 2012).



And last night after I posted the card I looked at it and realized that the original signs a sail.

…whose red & white stripes are the accepted color scheme of Viking ships…



(…and my family's shipping line flag

…AND were also used for the TROPICS MOTEL SEATTLE at some point:



…which makes your observation about the origin for the inspiration for the sign that much more likely
