Looking Back At Honolulu
The watercolor above was painted 160 years ago, by Robert Elwes, in 1849, of a harbor scene in Honolulu, Oahu, in what where then called the Sandwich Islands.
50 years later, in 1899, these three lovely local lasses posed in their grass skirts on Waikiki Beach.
And a mere 10 years later, in 1909, a photographer made this image of early surfers enjoying the waves on Oahu's south shore.
