The above image comes from a large-format, full color, promotional brochure for Anthony Pools, a major pool developer in Southern California in the ’50s and ’60s. The brochure has great images of Los Angeles paradise living, but the best has got to be the above centerfold, set at a “fascinating pool party… a luau by the light of tiki torches.” Some large tikis can bee seen at the back, and check out those bikinis! The brochure is from the collection of Sabu the Coconut Boy, a gift from Doctor Z.
