Would be great to resuscitate the image links at the beginning of this thread! How about it, Zulu, can you revive those?
Here are some more pics of the Waikikian from various sources. Some of these may be familiar views, but this thread seems a reasonable place to post em.
The iconic view of the Waikikian hyperbolic paraboloid lobby (is that what you call that shape?). I believe some of these classic images were taken by photographer Robert Wenkam.
This looks the same as the last shot, but if you scrutinize it, it's slightly different (look at the bending girl's posture and arms).
Closeup of part of the last shot
Another view, rotating around the side
Yet another view, looking outward from the grounds
Another closeup, on some tikis from the preceding image
Inside the lobby
Closeup from the previous lobby photo
View of a guest room - nice tiki guardian outside on the left
Kinda grainy pic of the walkway, from the 80s
Beachbum Berry has a couple more nice shots in his Ed Brownlee chapter of Sippin Safari, including a wider shot of that photo inside the lobby and also a closeup of one of the tikis (also referenced by Sabu on this Canlis thread, btw).
