Images of Hawaii - Early 20th Century - CAPTIONS UPDATED! | WHAT REALLY HAPPENED


Images of Hawaii - Early 20th Century - CAPTIONS UPDATED!

After a long delay in the postal system, these photos finally arrived, sent in by a reader. These are photos taken by a US Army soldier stations here in Hawaii at the close of WW1. His name is thought to be Edward Braza (or possibly Edward's father, first name unknown). He appears in many of the photos. From the multiple sizes of negatives and the attempts at hand tinting some photos, it is clear that Mr. Braza was a serious amateur photographer and captured many scenes of Hawaii as it was nearly 100 years ago. I am posting scans of the images here for Hawaii and history fans, and plan to find a suitable institution to donate the original prints to for preservation.

THIS IS A WORK IN PROGRESS, SO IF YOU HAVE ANY INFORMATION ABOUT LOCATIONS OR OTHER ITEMS SEEN IN THE PHOTOS, PLEASE EMAIL ME.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Several people have helped out identifying landmarks in the photos. The captions have been updated.
