nice pic, nostalgic, my mom (fannie lindsey) entertained on the Lurline (named after Lurline Matson) when it was in town, and my cousins used to dive for coins at the aloha tower. it was a different time in hawaii when local people actually made some money on tourists. my uncles were beach boys on waikiki, real beach boys, hawaiian surfer/sailor types who managed the crime and dollars on the beach. waikiki was a completely different place in the 1950’s. we lived on paukulani ave. in the mornings the mana pua man would walk the streets of waikiki, selling manapua. calling out “manapua, manapua”. as kids when we heard this we would take 5 cents and buy manapua for lunch.
different time…sam monet, aka kamuela kualii kalani kapu o kamehmeha lindsey
