Street:211 Hill St. (now Coast Hwy)

Well here is a place I have been looking for photographic evidence of, for quite some time. I found it listed in a phone book local phone book from 1968. It's not in phonebooks from 67 or 69. All it says under the listing is "Tiki Shack - Hawaiian Gods". I thought it was going to be impossible to find a photo of it since it existed for such a short time. I was digging thru the library's photo archives and about flipped when I found this photo.

I just wish I could see inside those windows!

This space has changed establishments a million times since 1968. It currently shows no signs of anything tiki.

Darn, too small and dark, I can't make out anything in the windows.

Maybe some carver opened this place trying to sell his work. We should ask O.A. if they knew this place.
