In Bed at 140 Dowsett Avenue1299 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.

In The Garden -- Dowsett Avenue3069 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.

Christmas at 140 Dowsett Avenue, 1950279 viewsMy father (cigarette in hand) calling me on my toy telephone. Mother looks on, as does a gentleman I don't recognise --- cocktail in hand.

The Family285 viewsMy mother, father, and grandparents Nana and Baba, at 140 Dowsett Avenue. I am guessing that this is circa 1948.

Pushing A Lawn Mower356 viewsThe Health and Safety people would be thrilled to see me pushing what appears to be a gas-operated lawn mower --- with no shoes. Makes my toes curl even now, over half a century later.
craig-orchids.jpg
Orchids263 viewsI've always loved orchids. Here I am, in the dirt at Dowsett Avenue, surrounded by orchids. Circa 1950.

Birdie and a Cocker Spaniel443 viewsTaken at 140 Dowsett Avenue (I recognise the green tile). The inevitable dog. And a wonderful retro television set.

Garden Path at Kealaolu Avenue, Kahala303 viewsNana and my mother, Shirley, examining the flowers on the garden path at Kealaolu Avenue in Kahala. My guess is this is from the mid 1940's. Nana and Baba sold their Kealaolu Avenue house circa 1947, and felt they had enough money to move into a hotel for the rest of their lives. And that's what they did: they moved into the Niumalu Hotel, on the site of the present Hilton Hawaiian Village. That lasted about a year.

The Laurels on Selma Avenue - Hollywood121 viewsWhen Marcia and I were first married (1971) we lived at The Laurels at 8017 Selma Avenue in Hollywood --- at the time near Schwab's Pharmacy on Sunset Boulevard. Our apartment was in the upper right hand corner of this California pink building. When we drove by it in 2001 --- some 30 years later --- nothing had changed.
Chase_s-Wall_1.jpg
Chase's Wall at 1258 Koko Head Avenue320 viewsIn circa 1979 we lived at one of the "Cenko" properties on Koko Head Avenue. I was cleaning paint brushes in the garage, and Chase was helping me. Her painting is still there. I painted her name in the midst of it all, and she adorned the "e."

Craig in the Model Village - at 140 Dowsett Avenue339 viewsPlaying in the back garden at 140 Dowsett Avenue in Nuuanu, creating my own little "model village," 1958. I can remember painting the clay pots to look like houses, and (of course) there was the obligatory running water. Didn't take long for it to turn into mud.
