Santa Barbara Museum

If your in Santa Barbara on a weekend you have to stop by the 2 Museum's that James O Mahoney has put together, this little collection of photos is Jim's Grandparents, both early pioneers in aviation.

The cowboy and indian part is too much.

One of only 2 chumash bows know to have survived.

1954 RV breakfast menu , with Leo Carillo's personel gun, Leo was a Rancho Vistadore.

SB history.

Jim's Dad was Jock Mahoney the actor/stuntman and was the first Tarzan.

I think his Grandparents had taken him on safari and around the world 2 or 3 times by the time Jim was a teenager.

Glady was areal barnstomer in her day .

Grandpa Odonnell, nice logo!

This is the new museum Jim put together , right next door is the Surfing museum but thats a another story. Both museums are right behind the Beachouse surfshop on Helana st. in the old Channel Islands shop.
