And another cool photo of the main entrance building with the Ilikai and Hilton Hawaiian Village looming in the background.



Great stuff. FWIW, all three buildings in the background are the Hawaiian Village - Rainbow Tower, Lagoon Tower, and conference center.

That's what I thought. Thought maybe I had myself turned around the wrong way. Thanks!

The day they blew down the HV I dodged HPD/heavy security and hid out in the parking structure seen behind the arch to watch it go from very up close. Lot's of unique history down in dust, RIP. BTW, the ol' girl looks beautiful even in contrast to the iconic arch. What a shame they're all gone.

Randy, thanks for that clarification on the adjacent buildings. The Ilikai was of course on the other side of the street from the Waikikian. Here is an aerial showing the the Hilton buildings, the Ilikai, and the Waikikian site being demolished/reconstructed.



And a few more old shots of the area pre-Ilikai.





Msteeln, cool story. Did you take any photos?

Saw this at the Stadium swapmeet,(Oahu) this past Sunday. The person selling it said the people he bought it from said it was from the 50's....asking price $250.

I wasn't expecting to be there, just happened to be at a friend's nearby bar and went with the moment to see how close I could get. The dust was so intense it got all into the air conditioning of the bar, making a huge (and expensive) mess, thwarting my retreat back to a safe and comfortable haven. Lesson; always turn off the AC for a bit when next to a demo site!

And now it's for auction

http://www.ebay.com/itm/New-Orleans-Jazz-Band-Tahitian-Lanai-drum-/250934553290?_trksid=p3286.m7&_trkparms=algo%3DLVI%26itu%3DUCI%26otn%3D3%26po%3DLVI%26ps%3D63%26clkid%3D4284443539952613444

I've never heard of New Orleans jazz exotica but I wouldn't mind hearing a Creole version of Quiet Village.

One of the desks is on auction
http://www.ebay.com/itm/Rare-1950s-Hawaii-Mid-Century-Tiki-Style-Desk-Tahitian-Lanai-Hawaii-/270878111617?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item3f1197f781


I was quoted $500 for shipping which is a little too rich for my blood but maybe not for yours, what a great computer desk it would make, alas.

Which is why it might stick around at a nice price for me, if I can just get it home on The Bus!

Saw this great photo of the Waikikian shot from across the lagoon on ebay. What a nice view, the last stand to the high-rise on the beach.

I'm thinking the Waikikian is the backdrop on this well-known LP then. I thought it might have been the Polynesian Cultural Center, but more lately thinking perhaps the old Ulu Mau Village....but it looks like the above photo, doesn't it?

Aloha,

the LP cover is Too early to be the PCC... Too built up for the Ulu Mau at the time... Most likely the Kaiser's Hawaiian Village... Second choice would be the Waikikian.

Hey, DC, the photo is even better in person. Yeah, I have it. There is SO little Waikikian/Tahitian Lanai memorabilia available that I revel in it every time that I am able to possess a small morsel of it!
I KNOW that there are more photos/movies out there. I just wish that they would surface so that we could enjoy them.

Kele,

I am so happy that you got that photo! PM your address and I will send you the extra luggage label I have if you need one for your collection.
