Interesting Tiki mask in this Trader Vic's ad.



Don't recall ever seeing one like this before at a Trader Vic's.

Interesting closeup/resampling of the usual Vics logo...



...which I had completely overlooked as being a FEMALE until mentioned by Sven and confirmed by Jonpaul

We were driving by the corner of Wiltshire and Santa Monica last night and where Trader Vics used to be is completely torn down and gone. I am pretty sure the fabulous old Bullock's building is also torn down.

Did you mean the Robinson's Department Store? It was next to Trader Vic's and it was torn down this past week along with Trader Vic's. You can see the Beverly Hilton in the background of the picture.
I hope the old Bullock's Wilshire is never torn down. It's too much of a landmark.



A sterile looking Waldorf Astoria will replace the 2 landmarks. They certainly didn't reference the New York Waldorf Astoria in designing the new hotel.

Bullocks Wilshire is owned by Southwestern Law school. They use it as their library and part of their campus. It's still very much there, and once a year there are tours available. http://www.swlaw.edu/campus/building/summerday
