Real-photo postcard by Zan Stark of the San Francisco location on Pacific Street (late 1940s?). Note that this photo seems to be the basis for the hand-tinted version posted previously.

There's also a night shot that Zan Stark took from the same corner.

I've wanted to check out his archives for years now so I could see his entire sequence of International Settlement photos.

The pillars that held up the International sign are still there but the Pago Pago building is gone
This is what it looks like today

Pago Pago side mural is interesting as it says: "House of Zombie"
Of course Zombies, not the drink, are associated with Caribbean religion and New Orleans Voodoo, not the South Seas
The actual city of Pago Pago in American Samoa has a historical link to cannibalism, but not Zombies?
Whereas the Sacramento bar Zombie Hut uses a cannibal image as there logo icon. Why the interchangeable iconography?

Also interesting is the 7UP logo on the side mural, showing that the Pago Pago is similar to any blue collar bar or liquor store that would willingly sell its wall space to any product willing to pay for it?
