I found a few more images on line from Tommy Wongs Islands Restaurant.

First up an older ad that does not have the rootball Tikis yet.



Another ad that includes the rootball Tiki and advertises the "New Waterfall Room".



Here is a magazine photo showing the interior - look at that loaded lazy susan!



Finally a slide from Charles Phoenix that shows an exterior photo.

Great napkin, have not seen that one before.

Two other menus types that were on ebay.

Dunno why nobody's mentioned it before..... Wally Turnbow's son (Wally was manager of The Islands) son posted in the Tiki drinks and food forum. He's selling some copies of his dad's and Dick Moano's book they published in 1963 (time capsules, brand new from the time of the Kennedy administration). Thought I'd post a link here, as I imagine some folks maybe don't check out that section of the site often. Hopefully cross-posting is allowed....

This article about Tommy Wong was just published in a local paper a few days ago: http://www.denverpost.com/voices/ci_26083607/what-i-know-about-immigration#disqus_thread

I recently got some slides that included some really nice interior and exterior shots of the Islands in Phoenix. Here's some of the better ones. There's a closer look at the Tiki with the Elvis-esque snarl that DC found in a magazine awhile back. The signage is pretty cool too. I hope you guys enjoy them.

This place had a great exterior and a great interior. I wish it was still operating.
