Found an old photo online of the garden dining area at Queen's Surf.



That had this rather imposing fellow.


Also and old sticker from the campaign to Save Queen's Surf!

The third photo from the top of page 1 showing the famous surfboard gates was taken by Radioman 3rd Class Gary Turner of the U.S. Navy. Gary and I were stationed together at the old Naval Communications Station and worked one, sometimes two nights per week as photographers at Queen's Surf luaus. It was Gary who suggested photographing me with my 1953 British Singer in the exit driveway, showing the gates. Of note, Gary and I recently discovered --- at age 77 and retired --- that we live within an hour's drive of each other on the Big Island.

CAROL LINDSAY WAS THE FEATURED DANCER IN QUEEN'S SURF LUAU SHOWS. PERFORMING FIRST IN A VELVET HOLOKU, SHE APPEARED AT SHOW'S END DANCING TAHITIAN. WHAT NOBODY COULD HAVE GUESSED AT THE TIME THAT SHE WAS ONLY 16, THEN 17 YEARS OLD AT THE TIME AND A STUDENT AT KAIMUKI HIGH SCHOOL. IN FUTURE YEARS I HAVE SEEN TEARS IN KENT'S EYES AS HE REMEMBERED HER. "ONSTAGE IN THAT HOLOKU," HE WOULD SAY, " SHE WAS MORE STATELY THAN A QUEEN ... "
