Product description:


Once the tallest structure in all of Hawaii, the Aloha Tower was built in 1926 as a fitting welcome for the boatloads of tourists arriving at Honolulu Harbor. In the 1920's and 30's, passenger arrivals, dubbed "Boat Days", were lively celebrations that often involved the entire community as many locals even left work early to take part in the event. The festivities included hula dancers, thousands of colorful streamers, and performances by the Royal Hawaiian Band, as the smell of fresh flower leis wafted through the entire harbor.

Though it's now dwarfed by downtown Honolulu's small jungle of high rise buildings, the Aloha Tower still stands tall as one of the state's most recognizable symbols of Hawaiian hospitality as it continues to welcome visitors from around the world.

This image, stunningly recreated by Michael David, is a reproduction of one of those original ads issued in 1929 by the Hawaii Tourist Bureau.
