Description:
Here is a great image of the vintage sign. The place is still open but I think most of the Polynesian decor is gone along with the Lani Restaurant. Anyone have anything on this one? Here is the website for the resort.

A newer image from the website.

Trav,

Here is another postcard with a different sign out front, not an improvement in my book.


Also a postcard rendering from Puamana.



The matchbook.

Thanks DC. I was thinking you may have something. Great stuff. Another example of how the rendering is always better than the real thing.

That is a cool find, Don, since this is a hobbyist mug, but I don't think a version from this hotel has come up yet:

http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?topic=20758&forum=5

It's out there in all kinds of glazes, some more interesting than others, like the one on the left, with speckles of green:



Now the one on the right (from the Tiki Kate collection) would not be so interesting, would it not have this pedigree on the back:



Despite the gold cold paint job being pretty crappy, the combination of Tiki and Space Needle is damn cool!
Maybe there was a booth where you could "paint your own Tiki mug" at the fair? And who was Virginia Moore ?



A house wife ? A teenager ? A tourist from Southern California? Will we ever find out?

P.S.: Not to forget, here's a GOOD thread about that World's Fair:
