Waikiki during WWII (1943 & 1944)

Here are a few more photos to go with those published earlier on 8-26 and 8-28.

The top three photos, with Duke Kahanamoku, are July 1943 publicity shots for the Outrigger Canoe Club's July 4 Water Carnival, later renamed the Walter J. MacFarlane Canoe Regatta. The event is still held every July 4 on Waikiki Beach.

The three photos in the second row of the large crowd on the beach are believed to be from the Kamehameha Day celebration in June 1944.
