A brochure printed for the opening of the restaurant which shows Higgins at work painting mural panels for the fabulous Art Deco interior is included in the sale. This large gouache painting is matted and framed behind glass and initialed by the artist.
The interior of The Restaurant Mayan was designed by architect Raymond Anthony Court. The brochure heralding the opening was titled "Mayan Motifs."
