[Kuokoa 1913 should be “Buke XLIX” but the Volume number in this issue is mislabeled as “Buke L” and later issues are mislabeled as “Buke VL” and “Buke LI”. Eventually the rest of this year is labeled “Buke LI” and the following 1914 as a result is called “Buke LII”.

Hopefully one day soon the Hawaiian-Language Newspapers will be rescanned so we can see clearer images of pictures like these from its pages!]

Painting dated using the Hawaiian-Language Newspapers? 1906.

BEATIFUL VIEW OF THE FAMOUS HILL OF KAIMANA HILA [DIAMOND HEAD], PAINTED BY ALEXANDER SCOTT [ALEKANEKELO SCOTT].

[This seems to be the painting, “Diamond Head from Tantalus,” currently dated c. 1906–1908. But being that it appears here already in 1906, this would mean that it was definitely painted in 1906 (if Scott arrived in Hawaii that same year).]
