Sea turtle was legal meat in the US until the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) of 1973. I remember seeing the huge sea turtles captured by fishermen on the Sea of Cortez in the early 70s. Current price for farm raised sea turtle steaks in the Cayman Islands is $35/lb, $1.50 wouldn't get very much.

This weekend, I found a whole bunch of vintage Sam's Seafood stuff when it looks to have been 'pre-tiki'. Maybe '40s or '50s judging by the prices? The turtle steak dinner is only $1.50!! ....wait a minute...turtle steak dinner??







And cocktails (no tiki drinks on the menu yet) are all around $.30.





$.15 for a beer?!




This envelope was also in the collection (which explains the fold line down the menu). Maybe it was a mailed promotional thing to drive business? Did they do that back then??




Business cards and matches were included as well














This was seperate from the collection and really cool, though I didn't end up buying it....yet.
Hand painted, camera ready art for some sort of promotional use.






Pretty cool to see Sam's before it underwent the tiki transformation. Even back then, the swordfish was on the roof!




Totally killer score Spike,
congrats!

Spotted these amazing photo's of Sam's Seafood on ebay a while back. This must have been right after the fire rebuild. Those beautiful Guanko Tikis!





Here is the walkway to what is now the Dagger Bar.


What is really interesting is the outdoor photos that show some sort of Luau grounds in what now is the expanded parking lot.





And for good measure, a photo posted on Facebook by Bigbro showing the exterior A-Frame and sign. Same image that Sabu posted on the newspaper ad.




Some pretty cool historical stuff!

This photo was sent to me with the following description:
"Here's an old snapshot (early 1960's) taken in front of Sam's Seafood. It appears to be taken during an ad shoot for Kanvas by Katin and it features famous surfers Corky Carroll and Mike Doyle. Little known facts: Corky grew up across the street in Surfside and helped Nancy Katin develop trunks that were specifically designed for surfing, creating the first board shorts."
