Westadad and Club Noname,

Thanks for the translation. Here is the back of the card. What does it say!



Bigbro, thanks also for all of the info, you seem to be right on all accounts. Although the two figures lying on the ground with the gray feathers seem to be more like the Duk Duk in design.

Still a good excuse to explore Duk Duk once again!

DC.




But now we gotta find out WHERE they do this "symbolic combat bird dance", darn it!

No mention on the backside where this takes place unfortunately.

Here's my best attempt to translate what's in the boxed area, I apologize in advance, my French is horrible.

"Religious dance to the Pacific Islands. In the islands of the South Pacific Ocean. we discover the various species of birds that are distinguished by their dense plumage, with various colors including Cockatoo, the Hummingbirds and Paradise. The natives have the feathers. (Cant make sense of this sentence) ??? are especially during religious ceremonies. Our picture shows three men wearing the mantle of Capuchin made using feathers of Cockatoo and Hummingbirds. they engage in a symbolic struggle of "good spirit" against the "evil spirit" who, dressed in a dark plumage, is represented to you. This fight gives rise to an annual solemnity. Single men can attend."

I'm still searching for the where this took place.

Hope to find our more about that bird dance.

Now this old German postcard is a Duk Duk.





When is a duck not a duck? When it's a Duk Duk!

Tried for this very cool Aloha Jhoe's drink menu on ebay.





The drinks.



Some interesting drink names.

They had a nice clam-shell bowl.



And the Aloha Jhoe's Punch (Mystery Drink?)



Rhum story.

Thanks DC for bumping this - fun to reread the Duk Duk discourse from bigbro, and nice to see that menu. Funny coincidence because with no knowledge of that ebay menu you showed, just last night I happened to scan the Aloha Jhoes drink menu page from a 1963 Palm Springs desert menu book. Here tis...

Here's a photo from the Palm Springs Historical Society that was mistakenly attributed to Don The Beachcomber's in an online article about the renovation of the old Don's property. The photo gives a rare glimpse of the inside of Aloha Jhoe's:



You can see the clamshell-shaped "Aloha Jhoe's Orchid Bowl" from the menu photos that DC posted. Also the famous Sascha Brastoff candle holder, (though I'm wondering now, could it have been used as a holder for a tall collins glass instead?). I love the elaborate hat that the waitress is wearing.

Here's the article about Don The Beachcomber's, that posted the photo:

Oh yeah - the folks sitting at the table are Janice and Frank Bogert, (the former mayor of Palm Springs).

Sabu,

Cool article, here is a Sascha Tiki ashtray.







DC



I thought this was pointed out some years ago, but I don't see mention of it so.....

This is from Sascha Brastoff's Pacific Northwest line & is in fact an "Indian Totem Pole" image
and not a Tiki, I am a collector of Brastoff & have this same piece in brown (and yes, it is still cool)
but facts are facts.
