Queen’s Hospital news from George Pooloa, 1930.


(Written by George Pooloa)

John Young is a grandchild of Queen Emma. Here at Queen Emma Hall [Kuini Ema Holo], the precious gifts from Britain are being cared for. In this Hall you can see antiquities of times gone by along with portraits of Queen Emma; Kamehameha IV, Liholiho; and the Prince, Kahakuohawaii. The favorite of Kamehameha IV was dogs, and when he was done eating, he would say, “That tiny pig was so delicious.”

[This is one of many articles written by George Pooloa in the Hawaiian-Language Newspapers. Many of his contributions are historical accounts. See here for an excerpt of one of them speaking of the naming of Hanauma: naneaarmstrongwassel on instagram  (as well as all the other articles!)

Does anyone know what became of these portraits and the other antiquities mentioned in this article?]
