Dave over at Daveland just posted this neat photo taken in Disneyland’s Adventureland in June 1958. This is the most traditional tiki I think I’ve ever seen at Disneyland, it’s pretty cool. I believe that when this picture was taken, Eli Hedley would have been running the Adventureland Bazaar which is right behind the tiki, and he may have been responsible for procuring this tiki. That’s just a wild guess, though.

    That there tiki looks very familiar.

    I have a photo of a similar one, but smaller, that was used

    at Trader Dicks in Sparks.

    Not a wild guess at all.

  2. Gallery of Art Says:

    Good site!
