The Arrival -- Honolulu4970 viewsMy parents met at Leyland Powers, a school of theater and broadcast in Boston (long gone, I'd guess -- Google comes up with nothing). They drove across country and then took a plane (shown) to meet my maternal grandparents in Hawaii. On the way, they got married in Nevada. This photo shows Birdie (my aunt), my father, mother, and grandmoter at Honolulu Airport, summer 1948. I can imagine it was an interesting arrival.

In Bed at 140 Dowsett Avenue977 viewsMe (on the left), Shauna (the baby), and Nana. My guess is late 1955. This isn't the best photograph -- no faces showing. I've included it anyway because I thought the bedside table is interesting. I love the old dial telephone, the 1950's shoji lamps. But my favourite thing is the bottle of lager and cigarettes. I never remember my grandmother drinking --- but larger! How images can be shattered through the magnification power of Adobe Photoshop.

Nana, Father, and Mother1210 viewsOn the beach at Kaneohe -- my guess is 1948, shortly after my parents were married (in Nevada) and arrived in Hawaii to live. My father looks suitably "white," and there's no sign of me yet, hence my guess as to the date.

Nana at the Elks Club343 viewsCirca 1964 or 1965

Happy Family?615 viewsThis is quite an old photograph -- pre WW2. My mother, on the left, looks positively wicked. Baba, Nana, and Birdie --- with a bright yellow flower.

The Newlyweds -- Honolulu Airport, Summer 1948468 viewsMy father and mother on arrival in Honolulu, for the first meeting with Nana and Baba --- my maternal grandparents.

Nana and Me699 viewsNana and me. I look thrilled to bits to be photographed. She's keeping the evil eye on me. This was taken at our new house (then) at 1080 Makaiwa Street in Honolulu, I would guess in 1956.

Christmas at 1080 Makaiwa Street376 viewsThis looks like one of those self-timer photographs, were Baba set the camera and then ran in (almost) into the frame. Baba (on his knees), me, my mother, Nana, Bappy, Neil Moore, and my aunt Birdie. Photographed at 1080 Makaiwa Street, circa 1956.

Nana, Baba, and Me367 viewsAt Shauna's birthday party at the Elks Club, Waikiki. I guess 1964 or 1965. I look delighted with the experience. Baba needs new glasses.

Birdie, Nana, and My Mother572 viewsOn the beach at Kaneohe. No signs of kids in the photo, so I would say this is 1948. The lush Kodachrome look to this photograph reminds me of 1950's Hawaii.

The Family219 viewsMy mother, father, and grandparents Nana and Baba, at 140 Dowsett Avenue. I am guessing that this is circa 1948.
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.
