Historypin, 2014.

Here is another page I have been playing with, a Historypin site. It is a pretty interesting concept which overlay historical images on a map where they took place. I will try to post more here as time allows.

Instagram, 2014.


Check out our Instagram page! The pictures are mainly from the historical Hawaiian Newspapers, and if there is a picture on Instagram, there usually is a related article here.

Vote James S. Ahchong, 1914.



To the Voters of the County of Maui.

Gentlemen: Upon the urgent request of my many friends throughout this county, to be a candidate for the House of Representatives on the Republican ticket at the coming primary, I hereby announce myself a candidate from the Hana District.

My principles and policies are to support each and every plank of the Republican Platform as adopted by the convention held for that purpose at Honolulu of which convention I was a member.

I boast not of experience, but with what little education, ability and zeal I possess, I assure you, and am confident, with your support at the polls, of upholding our motto of “Maui No Ka Oi.”
