About the Photos

Our holdings include hundreds of glass and film negatives/transparencies that we've scanned ourselves; in addition, many other photos on this site were extracted from reference images (high-resolution tiffs) in the Library of Congress research archive. (To query the database click here.) They are adjusted, restored and reworked by your webmaster in accordance with his aesthetic sensibilities before being downsized and turned into the jpegs you see here. All of these images (including "derivative works") are protected by copyright laws of the United States and other jurisdictions and may not be sold, reproduced or otherwise used for commercial purposes without permission.

SeaWorld 1967

SeaWorld 1967

Between the freaky looking orange guitar playing fish, the scary dolphin behind it, the wide-eyed penguin on the left and the lobster with eyelashes in front of it, this photo is just a little bit creepy. Also notice the Hawaiian Punch near the bottom.

Scanned from a Kodak safety negative. View full size.

Hawaiian Punch Village

This is a photo of the animatronic band in the foyer of the Hawaiian Punch Village restaurant at Sea World. The restaurant was sponsored by Hawaiian Punch and was in the shape of a Polynesian longhouse. You crossed a bridge over a pond to enter and there were lots of carved tiki poles outside. Inside you could order your Hawaiian Punch in a souvenir tiki mug and take it home with you afterwards.

I really like that carved tiki on the left-hand side. Classic late-60s era.

Much of the architecture of the San Diego Sea World was Polynesian in style, including the soaring A-frame entrance.

How'd You Like a Nice Hawaiian Punch?

I recall Hawaiian Punch being a sponsor at San Diego's SeaWorld. I still have the tiki mug, circa 1973.

Quite trippy

I love it, good old fashioned nightmare fuel.
