Found a 1948 Saturday Evening Post with a great article on the Don the Beachcombers in Hollywood.

Some amazing color photos of Hollywood celebrities and the interior of the DTB.

Love the Bamboo Chopstick case idea - like the Tiki Mug case at Tiki Ti and now the
DTB's in Huntington Beach. It appears to be well guarded by the manager!

Check out all of the collectibles on this table: Two postcards, a couple of drink cards, a matchbook, coasters, table lamp, and clam-shell ashtrays!

This is the only photo of Donn, a stock shot from Hawaii.

The article, which is quire long, focuses on Sunny Sund, Donn's ex-wife.

Will post more of the article later.
