From the collection of Dusty Cajun

Once again trawling for more information than an actual informative post at this point. We can tell from the matchbook that it had a great double torch holding Tiki out front.

It’s a little anti-climactic when you do an internet search and you or only people you know have posted the only images or bits of information.

The structure still stands as Tom Slick pointed out
here and can be rented out for events. Which goes onto the list of other cool possible event places like the former Zamboanga.

I went by on a Sunday morning to take pictures but there were people working at 7AM. YIKES!!!





Yes, I’m the guy who finally bought the Yue’s Season’s Greetings matchbook that had been on eBay for years.



Let’s see your Chinese Restaurant Holiday Matches!

Now we wait…

Bora Boris,

Just got this nice matchbook that features both the Yue's in Gardena and the Yue's Lahani Holaha on the Redondo Pier.





Now about the holiday matchbooks, do you really want to see those as well?

Very cool find DC!

That reminds me, I forgot to post the old Yellow Pages ad ~



No need to post the Holiday Matchbooks.
