As the capital of Hawaii, Honolulu has been an integral part of the fabric of the history of the islands and of the United States. The story of this city reflects both a diverse and progressive spirit, and a unique culture that is the foundation of the city’s present-day prosperity.

From the outrigger canoes of Waikiki to the tall ships of Honolulu Harbor, from the Kingdom of Hawaii to statehood, the history of Honolulu through good times and bad has always played out against a backdrop of uncommon natural beauty. Home to the only royal residence on American soil, Honolulu witnessed in less than a century's time the overthrow of the Hawaiian monarchy, the rise of the powerful sugar barons, an outbreak of bubonic plague, and the devastating attack on Pearl Harbor. Yet always this unique port city has offered an easygoing, welcoming spirit, along with the warm trade winds and soft ocean swells for which Honolulu is world famous. Historic Photos of Honolulu presents nearly 200 images from the later years of the Hawaiian kingdom to the early years of the fiftieth state.
