Far reaching influence of Hawaiian lauhala, 1911.

[Found in: M. McInerny, Ltd. advertisement]


Baltimore is headquarters for the finest grade of straw braids for hats for men and boys. Even lauhala from Hawaii is sent to Baltimore to be sewn into hats that bring high prices in the cities on the mainland. We have the genuine Baltimore braids in the straws we sell. Also we have the gigh standard Panama hats, woven in the Canal Zone and sewn and finished by Christy in London.

Old canoe, 1902.

Waa of the Olden Days

There is a tiny waa of the old sort, like those of the time of Kamehameha or perhaps before that; it is being displayed at the store of McInerny [Makanani] on Fort Street. The small waa is in good condition, and is truly beautiful to see. Antiquities are something those of today have much interest in. Canoe building will be demonstrated as a means to earn some money for that festive day of June, the holiday for Ka Na’i Aupuni, Kamehameha.

[Anyone know what became of this waa?]
