LADY FLOWER SEWERS OF THIS CAPITAL.

The picture above is of the sweet-eyed mothers and ladies of the flower gardens of Walikanahele, selling their flowers on the street sides of our Capital. Not only on the streets, they go aboard the steamships and the ships that are docked. Yes. Do good work. Keep at it.
