Here are a couple pics of the Tahitian Lanai from the 80s.


This one shows how you could sort of see in from the street

I was going to post a handful of photos of the Waikikian, but have the darndest time figuring out where to put them. Maybe together with the Tahitian Lanai, here? Or should there be a separate Locating Tiki thread for the Waikikian Hotel itself? Or maybe just use the 2003 thread started by ZuluMagoo?

I vote for the Zulu Magoo thread and maybe Sabu could repost his images from the April 1957 issue of INTERIORS magazine.

Maybe?

Done, and I totally agree about refreshing the dead (or "shutterflown") links on that thread!

I'll see if I can re-scan those pictures from the other thread.

In the meantime, here is an image that DC posted earlier. This is just a little more of a close-up, showing the colors the tiki pole was painted by the 1970s.

Was just lucky enough to obtain one of the tiki from the old Tahitian Lanai!
Three of them ended up on Kauai and the Historical Society was selling them off.
I have one, my neighbor has one and so does a friend. There were 40 of them from Tahiti.
This one is pretty happy to be here in Hanalei.

Where did you find this? & I want one! Altho I suppose it would be difficult to get it to Pennsylvania.

The Historical Society here had 3 for sale as fundraisers.
They came over from Oahu, brought by someone at the auction when the
old Waikikian Tahitian Lanai was torn down.
I'm one lucky Goddess!

Aloha

Nice one. It's one of the hotel room buildings at the Waikikian. You can see one of the Edward M. Brownlee gables on the top. Was there a side view or any others there?

Aloha Phillip, the only other pictures of this place were these three. They were already posted on the first page of this thread by DC so i didn't include them in my post.

These rare and sought after set of Tahitian palm tree mugs sold within the last several days
on flea bay .Same tiki mugs that Tiki Kate posted prior on this thread.Not my photos.
Photos by Kooky kitsch .Tiki petroglyphs on lower part of mug .I would think these would be
considered crypto mugs, since they are so rare .

I would very much like to connect with someone who would like to have extended conversations about the Waikikian/Tahitian Lanai.

Another cool feature of these Huntington Library photos of the Tahitian Lanai, is that they have a feature to let you Zoom-In on the details to quite a high degree. And because these were good negatives, you can really get into the pictures. With a few screen-grabbing tricks, I was able to get the images below:
