Birdie and a Cocker Spaniel237 viewsTaken at 140 Dowsett Avenue (I recognise the green tile). The inevitable dog. And a wonderful retro television set.
garden-path.jpg
Garden Path at Kealaolu Avenue, Kahala225 viewsNana and my mother, Shirley, examining the flowers on the garden path at Kealaolu Avenue in Kahala. My guess is this is from the mid 1940's. Nana and Baba sold their Kealaolu Avenue house circa 1947, and felt they had enough money to move into a hotel for the rest of their lives. And that's what they did: they moved into the Niumalu Hotel, on the site of the present Hilton Hawaiian Village. That lasted about a year.
HIFF.jpg
Hawaiian Island Flowers & Foliage - HIFF220 viewsThis was Nana's florist business. It was almost eight acres of nursery, plus a retail florist, all located on what is now the freeway interchange in Moanalua. Tourists walked through the gardens in the back, which were gorgeous. HIFF provided the flowers for many of the Elvis movies in Hawaii. I loved the place because it had lots of padlocks that came with lots of keys.

Nana, Baba, and the Silversword174 viewsThe only thing I know about this photograph of Nana and Baba is that it was taken at the top of Haleakala on Maui: that's the only place where silversword grows. There are other pictures in the same series featuring people I don't know. All seem to have the same logo on their caps. I tried zooming in on it, but couldn't make out what it was. Circa 1947 or so.
lake-shasta.jpg
Lake Shasta?198 viewsI don't know why I think this is Lake Shasta. I've never been to Lake Shasta. It's Nana on the right, and could be Mum (Baba's mother, Lily Wyser Wilkinson) in the middle. Don't know who it is on the left, or the year.
mother-mum-shauna.jpg
Mother, Mum (Lily Wyser Wilkinson), and Shauan225 viewsPhotographed at 1080 Makaiwa Street. Mum was my great-grandmother: Lily Wyser Wilkinson. We've been able to trace her family tree: this information is on our other website. My sister, Shauna, was born on Mum's birthday -- April 5. I would guess this is circa 1956.

Mother Looking Pleased244 viewsI think this was taken at Honolulu Airport. Note the luggage and my little travelling blazer: in those days we dressed up to take an airplane somewhere. I was already taking photographs: note the camera. I'd obviously done something to make my mother happy, since she has such a Happy Face. Not!
nana-baba-craig.jpg
Nana, Baba, and Me188 viewsThe thing I like best about this photograph, taken circa 1956, are our bare feet. I zoomed in on them with Photoshop, and they're pretty well worn. No wearing of house slippers for us --- bare feet!
PAA-bag.jpg
Honolulu Airport232 viewsI can only guess at the date of this photograph -- late 1950's or early 1960's. The old Honolulu Airport terminal is behind the PanAm airplane. I love the PanAm attendants doing things at the gate itself. No air bridges. My father with Nana: not sure who's going where.
shauna.jpg
Shauna and the Shoji Lamp223 viewsPhotographed at the front door of 1080 Makaiwa Street, circa 1956.
shoe-shine.jpg
Shoe Shine Boy737 viewsBaba (my maternal grandfather) loved to build make-believe forts for me, using rope and blankets. Here I am with a fort, but I seem to be preoccupied with the shining of shoes. I think the radio (is that what it is?) in the background is amazing.
shell-leis.jpg
Mother (on right) Showing Tahitian Shell Necklace to A Lady1158 viewsI have no idea who the other lady is, or why mother was showing her a shell necklace. Date unknown -- probably early 1960's.
