Randy,

Thanks for those great screen grabs, awesome clarity and great to see the inside of the Balboa location.

I picked up a postcard from Laguna Beach that shows a peek at the Christians Hut sign and building.



I was located down the street from the Victor Hugo Inn restaurant.



Also spotted this old drink menu from the Balboa restaurant with all of the tropical favorites of the day.



Speaking of Balboa, here is an old slide photo that sold on ebay with a nice view of the Goof on the Roof.







And finally an old photo of the Christian's Hut entry in the 1947 Pirates Day Parade in Balboa.



This tradition must have preceded Talk Like a Pirate Day!

Bigbro,

Nice photo. I found another old image of the Christian's Hut at the Isthmus on Catalina in a google book.



This was before the deck was added to the side of the building.

Another menu type from Balboa and Laguna Beach with a different illustration of The Goof.
