Decided to do a little updating of the dreaded Red Xs for this one.

I picked up this postcard from the Jade Restaurant in Kingman, Arizona. One of those classic roadside spots along Route 66.


Here is a close-up of the sign and the painted Tiki out front.


Here are a couple more postcards showing early versions of the Jade Restaurant.



I found this information about the original owner Charlie Lum from a Kingman Cookbook on-line.


Here is another photo postcard of Charlie Lum at the Lewis Restaurant.


Charlie Lum must have sold the Jade at some point as the back of the postcard I have says the owners were Tommy and Gracie Choy.
