Excerpt:
“Centuries before the coming of the white man to Hawaii, there was rooted deep in the fertile soil of these fragrant islands an empire of which no man had ever dreamed. When tall masted ships dropped anchor in Honolulu’s blue harbor, little more than sandalwood and tapa cloth awaited them.”

This is a 85 yr. old original vintage ad removed from a 1936 publication and is not a reproduction of any kind.
