The Arrival -- Honolulu5023 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.

On The Lanai at 1080 Makaiwa Street1079 viewsI think this is around 1964 or 1965. On the screened lanai at 1080 Makaiwa Street: Shauna, our mother (reclining), me, and one of Shauna's friends. The usual assortment of dogs: two on my lap, and one on the window ledge.

Nana, Father, and Mother1217 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.

Happy Family?623 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 1948482 viewsMy father and mother on arrival in Honolulu, for the first meeting with Nana and Baba --- my maternal grandparents.

Mother and Me at Waikiki Beach267 viewsI don't ever remember going to the beach with my mother, but it must have happened because here's the photographic proof. Circa 1956.

Birdie, Nana, and My Mother579 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.

Christmas at 140 Dowsett Avenue, 1950210 viewsMy father (cigarette in hand) calling me on my toy telephone. Mother looks on, as does a gentleman I don't recognise --- cocktail in hand.

The Family223 viewsMy mother, father, and grandparents Nana and Baba, at 140 Dowsett Avenue. I am guessing that this is circa 1948.

Garden Path at Kealaolu Avenue, Kahala231 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.

Mother, Mum (Lily Wyser Wilkinson), and Shauan233 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 Pleased248 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!
