Historic Photos of Honolulu by Clifford Kapono

Turner Publishing announces the new release, the Historic Photos of Honolulu by Clifford Kapono. This 10x10 volume showcases the pictorial history of Honolulu in stunning, culled-from-the-archives images.

Nashville, TN, November 26, 2008 --(PR.com)-- The History of Honolulu Told Through Historic Photographs.

As the capital of Hawaii, Honolulu has been an integral part of the fabric of the history of the islands and of the United States. The story of this city reflects both a diverse and progressive spirit, and a unique culture that is the foundation of the city’s present-day prosperity.

With fact-filled photo captions and chapter introductions by author Clifford Kapono, Historic Photos of Honolulu rediscovers the fascinating past of this city through nearly 200 rare photographs culled from the Hawaii State Archives and the Library of Congress, showcased with exceptional clarity and beauty.

From the Kingdom of Hawaii and ‘Iolani Palace, to Honolulu Harbor and the infamous attack on Pearl Harbor, and much more, Honolulu is shown through the decades in glorious black-and-white photography, displayed in a large format.

“The historic photos of ‘Iolani Palace in Honolulu, for example, help serve as prima facie evidence testifying to the landscape, architecture, and people who made up that particular drama at a particular period in time. Since many historical events took place at ‘Iolani Palace the photos tell their story as transitioning through these different historical events,” says author Kapono.

Historic Photos of Honolulu is part of Turner Publishing’s Historic Photos series. These books, highlighting the history of the great cities across America, have been acclaimed as a staple in the collection of anyone who loves history.
