Found another essay in the December 1961 issue of Gent Magazine on what was seen at the time as the "bawdy" paintings in the Leilani Hut's restroom.

A-Frame, they used to advertise it as the Louvre in the Lav!



Lusty, Busty, and Bustling!

A few more ads with a nice graphic of the exterior.

Ich bin sprachlos DC! How about I "Louvre it"! You're on a mission, thanks for keeping Locating Tiki fresh in our minds!

Mmmmm...this presents a couple of research questions. Wondering what ever happened to all of those paintings and who was King Benny "King of the Uke"??

Bit of Long Beach trivia. Don May started the tradition of the floating Christmas trees here.

Now that's the politically incorrect Tiki lifestyle that I love!

BTW, the floating Christmas Trees lights around Belmont Shore and Naples were his idea and project to attract people to the area and brighten up the place. There's an archive piece from the LB Press Telegram documenting all this but it's in a family album someplace; I can't locate it online.

Thanks for the answer to my "Bennie" question and a very nice photo of the front of the Leilani tikicoma!
