Early movies of Hawaii, 1913.

THE PARADE ON WASHINGTON’S [BIRTH]DAY WILL BE FILMED

Because there is a desire to have a movie of the parade on this upcoming birthday of Washington, a man famous for filming movies arrived aboard the Wilhelmina last week, and he is spending some days of this month filming the volcano, the sugar plantation, the harbors, and famous sights to delight the millions of people of the world.

If this haole has spare time, he will spend some time going shark fishing, and filming it.

He will go to the pineapple plantations, and film the growth of the pineapple, the activities of the laborers, as well as the canning.

During the parade on Washington’s birthday, he will be the one rolling his film; and it is believed that there will come a time when the world will see scenes of the parade in Hawaii because of this haole.

[Anyone know who this is, and where these reels might be today?]
