More on Kaiulani buttons, 1899.

Kaiulani Souvenirs.

B. Lichtig, the artist, has produced a number of photographic buttons with the picture of the late Princess. They are fro sale at 606 Fort street, near Beretania street, and at the gallery of J. S. Williams. The loyal Hawaiians will wear the button on the day of the funeral.

[How is that for advertising? “The loyal Hawaiians will wear the buttons…”]
