Aloha,

Mahalo TikiG! Just 31 days to release!



1950's Business card of travel specialist H. Morris. Harry B. Soria of the Territorial Radio actually remembered this guy. "Big red-headed haole." His middle name translates to “The misty seas of the high heavens.” I'd intended to use this somewhere in the book, but couldn't find the right place or context for it.

Aloha,

30 days to release of Waikiki Tiki!



Talin and Bear are world champion Tandem surfers. I used their photograph in "Waikiki Tiki: Art, History and Photographs" in a Diamondhead shot as they were practicing lifts on the beach. Here they are holding the book and showing the page.

That's a nice bit of history.

Awesome book Buddy! Thanks for letting me get a preview! So many new to me Tiki images from the past that I'm still in sensory overload. On first inspection,I went through the 250+ pages twice just to enjoy the images. Can't wait to get my copy and read the text that goes with these great images. Mahalo Phil, a book like this was long overdue!

Freddie

Aloha,

Mahalo Freddie and thanks for everything. Look at you scoring stuff from the closed Hawaiian Hut. Bittersweet! ;(

BTW, I tried to count the tiki images in the book. I came up with 4700ish in the 263 pages...and I'm sure I missed a few... I count 23 days to release!!

I am glad it went to a deserving owner, if it could not have stayed.

House of Ku:
Of course, you need to post photos to indicate that they did, in fact, go to a good home!

Aloha

2 Weeks to release!

I've never been able to take photos of the Wailana Coffee Shop bar that convey the full beauty of the octagonal room so I left it out of Waikiki Tiki: Art, History and Photographs.

Good pupu's, decent drinks and great atmosphere. There is a huge turtle shell and loads of bamboo. I try to take visitors there whenever I can. It's right across from the Hawaiian Village on Ala Moana Boulevard and it's air-conditioned. As a bonus, the restaurant does an all you can eat pancake special!


Some of you might know the fellow in front of the Cook Islands carved paddle. Tiki Bong!

I sympathize: I have had locations like that, that look great in person, but are impossible to squeeze into a frame.
With the Hawaiain Hut and Chuck's Steakhouse gone now, the Wailana Coffee Shop lounge is one of the last authentic old style environs left in Waikiki. Not mindblowing, simple in many ways, but because of its rarity, now a gem.
