Really Old Hawaii, Vintage 1916

video

Amazing video by a Dutch film crew working in Hawaii in 1916, with footage of a Hawaii Consolidated Railway train on the Hamakua coast, Hilo Bay and Makee Island in Kapiolani Park. The soundtrack is a hoot!

Translations of the title cards:
  1. Bird’s-eye view of the Hawaiian Islands.
  2. The islands belong to the Sandwich Isles. The landscape is very mountainous.
  3. A ride on the Hilo track.
  4. The natives fish in the surf with the help of nets.
  5. Characters from Hawaii.
  6. With a speed of 20 mph through the surf.
