[This is part of a series of pictures of old Honolulu that ran on the first page of the Kuokoa. From about 1900, pictures become an added feature of the papers. Paging through the papers, you never know what or who you will come across! (…even after the all of the pages become word searchable, until they find a way to indicate that there is an image of this or of that).

(Kuokoa, 3/6/1903, p. 1)
