Aloha and Hola, the photographer on the Japanese Hula Honey is Fritz Kraft...he did most of the souvenir type photo packets for the GI's....her name is Esther Sanoda....I used to have quite a few pics of her, once selling at a show in Oahu an old man screamed when he saw the pics on my table and he looked up and said "I NEVER THOUGHT I WOULD SEE ESTHER AGAIN!" Turns out he dated her and she is 22 years old in those pics...to much information? maybe but there ya have it.

Now THAT, Mexatiki, is one of the coolest things I've read on TC in ages! What a wealth of bizarro information we are - thanks for adding the Esther info!

glad y'all like the photos. i too can't help wondering what was going on in the minds of the photographers & their subjects. ultimately, i just think photos like these & the fascination they must have inspired when first scene back on the mainland have a lot to do w/ why tiki bars & polynesian pop took off like it did!

Mexatiki,

Thank you so much for the incredible info! Wow! You just breathed a bit more life into these photos.

Your post pretty much sums up (in a coconut shell) why Tiki Central is so frickin' AMAZING (which is quite an accomplishment for only your 7th post)!

Cheers,

Tiki Chris

HEHEHEHE what I did not tell you was that those Hula Honey's got paid 100 bucks for a day of topless photography...Esther liked her Mai Tai's too and she used to dance on tables...

Great pics! In a way it kind of saddens me to think of why someones personal photos are sold off - kinda like seeing people's family photos in the $3.00 frames at the Goodwill - sad.




The toughest ones for me are the framed, oftened hand tinted, portraits of soldiers from World War Two that I see from time to time at the flea markets. It kills me to see them staring out forlornly. All that sacrifice forgotten.

Fantastic images. I would love some copies!
I too have an attraction to "Other peoples photo's" I have 3 large vintage scrapbooks, that literally follows a young soldier and his bride from dating, marriage, the war, domestic life, drunken car accident, drawn out recovery......Found them all in the loft of an old garage. Hubby was a portrait photographer, wife was a part time model and worked for Kodak. No kids.......

That explains that impish grin and those mischievious eyes.

Nice photos Chris!

I especially like the 'Hukilau' photo. Look at the waves behind that guy!

Also, the 'Gaugin model' is the definitive photo when I think of Polynesian paradise.

Great work, my friend!

I know this is an old thread but does anyone know much more about Fritz Kraft besides him doing souvenir photos? Did he ever do larger prints? It really is great stuff. There are lots of his post cards on eBay.
