The Arrival -- Honolulu5096 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.
Christmas 1956490 viewsBappy, my uncle Neil Moore, and my aunt Birdie sitting on the couch in our new home, 1080 Makaiwa Street
In Bed at 140 Dowsett Avenue1094 viewsMe (on the left), Shauna (the baby), and Nana. My guess is late 1955. This isn't the best photograph -- no faces showing. I've included it anyway because I thought the bedside table is interesting. I love the old dial telephone, the 1950's shoji lamps. But my favourite thing is the bottle of lager and cigarettes. I never remember my grandmother drinking --- but larger! How images can be shattered through the magnification power of Adobe Photoshop.
On The Lanai at 1080 Makaiwa Street1099 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 Mother1235 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.
Nana at the Elks Club383 viewsCirca 1964 or 1965
In The Garden -- Dowsett Avenue2591 viewsI'm playing with cut flowers. I'd guess this is late 1949 or early 1950, taken in the garden at 140 Dowsett Avenue. The great expanse of lawn and garden that ultimately became (sadly) 156 Dowsett Avenue.
Happy Family?642 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 1948501 viewsMy father and mother on arrival in Honolulu, for the first meeting with Nana and Baba --- my maternal grandparents.
Christmas at 1080 Makaiwa Street405 viewsThis looks like one of those self-timer photographs, were Baba set the camera and then ran in (almost) into the frame. Baba (on his knees), me, my mother, Nana, Bappy, Neil Moore, and my aunt Birdie. Photographed at 1080 Makaiwa Street, circa 1956.
Nana and Me729 viewsNana and me. I look thrilled to bits to be photographed. She's keeping the evil eye on me. This was taken at our new house (then) at 1080 Makaiwa Street in Honolulu, I would guess in 1956.
Nana, Baba, and Me392 viewsAt Shauna's birthday party at the Elks Club, Waikiki. I guess 1964 or 1965. I look delighted with the experience. Baba needs new glasses.
