OK, I have been holding out on you all. I'm sorry, but I was not ready to talk about this before.
unkle Mike Roberts was a photographer and postcard producer in Hawaii (and the rest of the US) from the late 1950's through 1989 when he passed.
Unkle Mike was a very nice man. He treated me well and took me to Hawaii.
He used to come back to California frequently. He lived in Berkeley and on his mainland visits, he took Grandma Minnie, Auntie Marilyn and me to Trader Vic's, The Tonga Room and many other Polynesian themed venues in California.
This is one of his photos in 1968 at Trader Vic's in the International Market Place. Trader Vic's moved there from Ward Street after the Abbott family sold the franchise to the Spencecliff corporation in 1967.
Please post Mike Roberts photographs to this thread and I will do
