Honolulu in 1854



Familiar views of Honolulu usually include shoreline skyscrapers. Not so many years ago, it looked like this one tint stone lithograph, printed in San Francisco in 1854. It is described as "the view from the Catholic Church".

interesting title - it leads the viewer to wonder if that's how or what the church saw! steven

That is very interesting... I like the smaller, up-close views surrounding the larger view. :o) Happy Weekend, Golden West ((HUGS))
