Old newspaper photo from 1962 of Trader Vic celebrating the 5th anniversary of the Chicago restaurant.



That pegs the opening in 1957.

Another article from 1968 extolling the virtues of Papaya.

A few more news clippings from the Trader Vic's Traders at the Palmer House.

This one announces the return of Lai Lee as the manger of Trader Vic's.




And a couple of photos from an event at the Traders.
