OK, these aren't so much "recent discoveries", but rather snapshots from an old Kodak camera that I took after the flood of, um, 1972 maybe? There were several floods during the late sixties to mid- seventies that were diverted down the north side of the Arizona canal and severely dampened the Safari, and closer to Indian School Rd. and 56th Street the homes of many members of Prince of Peace Lutheran Church. So here we have the porte cochere and entrance to the lobby resplendent in the hotel's trademark pink and purple, and a nice look at the hotel sign touting "Lee Meza" as the entertainment in the French Quarter night club. This was when it was generally as the Safari Hotel, not the "Safari Resort".
