Round Robin Challenge: Words and Pictures, Mostly on Paper

For the Round Robin Challenge: Words and Pictures, I asked to see one or more photographs of something that contains both words and pictures. I didn't get out for a specific photo shoot this time, but let's see what we can come up with!

Let's start with a few shots from April, 2014, when John and I attended the 50th Anniversary party at Kon-Tiki, on what was really the 51st anniversary. Here are both sides of the special menu they had that night. One side was for appetizers at 1963 prices, the other for cheap drinks.

Many of the tables also had this commemorative poster.

But there was another version, and we bought the artist's proof, direct from the artist, Doug Horne. I have it pictured here with several Tiki mugs from Kon Tiki plus a Tiki mug and two Moai salt shakers from Disneyland (one of them is tipped over to show the Disneyland logo on the bottom).

Speaking of Disneyland, we own two reproduction posters of attractions, one past, one present, both with an outstanding combination of words and pictures!

The Rocket to the Moon Poster is the one we bought at the relaunch of Tomorrowland in 1998, specifically to ask astronaut Buzz Aldrin to sign it. He didn't do it.


Disneyland itself has lots of words and pictures combinations, including this obscure example photographed in May 2013.

So far I don't have anyone else for my Round Robin Photo Challenges Linking List this week. I'll let you know if anyone else participates (pleasepleaseplease!)!

Hi Karen :)

I am here, I am here, and I am all posted! I edited the post at the RRC!

You have mentioned this restaurant for as long as I have known you, and it has left me really intrigued! If I ever come to AZ I know it will be high on my list of MUST SEE! It looks like a HOOT! It reminds me of a restaurant from when I was a child called the Tiki Hut. And it also makes me think of one in Disneyland, can't remember the name, where I had an amazing lunch called a Pineapple Bob I think?? I was about 7 or 8 at the time, so memory fails me.

Anyway, forgive my tardiness! I had a lot going on! I am here now though and I posted! TTYS!

Carly, that would have been the Tahitian Terrace. I'm sorry to say it's long gone from Disneyland and I don't remember it. But there is a Tiki bar at the Disneyland Hotel, and of course the Enchanted Tiki Room attraction at Disneyland. The Dol Bar at the Enchanted Tiki Room courtyard is famous for something called Dole Whip, which I'm determined to try next time.
