Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Named “the sheltering place” by native Hawaiians, Honolulu is situated on a beautiful bay surrounded by mountains, waterfalls, and white sandy beaches. See how this gem has evolved since King Kamehameha moved his royal court here in 1845 — from Diamond Head to Pearl Harbor — in this exciting new edition of the best-selling Then & Now series.

  • As the center of commerce for the Hawaiian Islands, Honolulu boasts a unique skyline: its sky-scrapers are surrounded by breathtaking natural beauty. See how downtown has evolved with then-and-now glimpses at Main Street, Bishop Street, and Fort Street.

  • Tourism brought rapid growth to Honolulu — and brought surfing to the rest of the world. Drop by the Moana Hotel and Old Waikiki Beach where Duke Kahanamoku commanded the waves.

  • Discover Royal Hawaii with interesting picture-pairs of Queen Emmas Summer Palace, Coronation Pavillion of King Kalakaua, and the Royal Mausoleum.

  • Pay your respects at the USS Arizona and the Arizona Memorial, site of the Pearl Harbor attacks in 1941.

  • Thousands of tourists from all over the world flock to Honolulu every year to soak up the sun and Aloha spirit. Honolulu Then & Now makes a unique sight-seeing book.
