Dusty! This brought up some interesting info. Victor N. Jones was, indeed an architect in Seattle and had a firm there from 1942-55. Before that he had been in a Seattle firm that won national recognition for main street store front remodels. He had been an architect since 1926 (UW grad.). Became local AIA president then retired to Maui in 1959.
In 1945 Jones & associates hired Lloyd Lovegren as associate architect for their Boise office (1945-50). Lovegren had been head drafting room architect for the Pacific Naval Air Force Bases in Pearl Harbor (1940-42). In 1951 he left to form a firm that received critical acclaim designing for Trader Vic. Lovegren designed several restaurants for Bergeron including Denver (1954),



Chicago (1957) and Havana (1958).

Also of interest to Poly-popsters would be the Dynasty Restaurant in the Ilikai Hotel Honolulu (1968).

Wow, great research Tikicoma! Always nice to find out about the architects who made the Tiki magic happen. I am assuming that photo was from Denver?

Yep, Denver 1954. Matched the wall, lamp, chairs and hanging starfish/shells in fishnet from the Denver Outrigger thread postcard and photos.

In the early 1960's in Seattle, if you were fortunate enough, you could go downtown to Trader Vic's for fine cocktails and exotic meal of...


SPAGHETTI?
