This exhibition sounds like it was something to see! 1887.


This new exhibit is at Hilo town, Hawaii, for just a few weeks, and it will go to Kohala, Hawaii; and Wailuku and Hana on Maui.

This Cosmorama will show views of the large famous cities, storied places of the land, some famous important things made from ancient times to the present. Amongst these things will be a scary eruption of Kilauea crater that was witnessed a long time ago, the glow at Laupahoehoe, the festivities on the birthday of King Kalakaua, Nov. 16, 1866, the funerary procession of Queen Emma Kaleleonalani, the many hula assemblies held on the Jubilee, the Alii, the King, and his attendants at the palace, and many other fine things.

High praise were given to this Cosmorama photo exhibition that was held here in Honolulu, and everything was performed with lighting and binocular lenses. This was something very astonishing for everyone who went to see the wealth and the enlightenment of man.
