Here are a few more shots of the South Pacific
I have a decent size collection, I don't think it can compare to Sabu's, but here a few few of my favorites.
I love the colors in this card - the Tahitian Inn, Tampa, Florida
This is a common card for the Trader Vic's in Scottsdale Arizona
But here's a card showing a street scene along 5th Avenue (card is dated 1970) in Scottsdale. The distinctive roof line of the Trader Vic's restaurant is plainly visible behid the Lady Mardens store.
Here's a card from across the pond. It's from the Beachcomber in the May Fair Hotel in London. TraderWoody, do you know anything about this place?
Here is a Polynesian Pop contribution from Lincoln, Nebraska
The Samoan Village in Phoenix, Arizona (card postmarked 1965)
lots of tikis here
And finally, my favorite card in my collection.
The back of the card reads "Costa Mesa, California - Entrance to a midway at the Orange County Fair, which is held in midsummer at the County Fair grounds north of downtown Costa Mesa."
I think this is the best part of the part, look at this boy checking out the tiki being carved on the ground, he looks captivated.
