Here's a great photo of service men in front of Trader Vic's dated 1944 that was on the web.

That photo is actually the crew of the submarine USS Segundo on the Majuro Atoll in the South Pacific. They built themselves a little Trader Vic's bar for R & R. You can see the story here:

Here's a picture of an ad for Trader Vics, as well as a couple sample pages from 'Snooper' Honolulu tourist guide, circa 1973.
