I’m only part way through this entry and it’s time to start our walk, so I’m going to post what I’ve got and return to the task when we return.
I found these snapshots among my fathers papers and photos. I’m guessing that they date back to the first year or so that he was in Hawaii. He would have seen his first Kamehameha Day parade in 1939, and that’s the approximate date I put on these pictures.
The festivities here were taking place between Iolani Palace and the Kamehameha statute across the street, and then in a short stretch of King Street.
[Ooops. Cat fight sounds out front. Had to run out and check. Found Romeo next door nose to nose with one of the young orange cats that has been sneaking around. Intervention successful!]
In any case, just click on this parade scene to see the little collection.
This is Mr. Silverman. He saw Meda drop a bag on the counter and he was on it in seconds for a bit of a nap.
