The Hawaiian Royalty prided it self on the manner in which it closely adapted and adopted the practices of European monarchy, especially the British.

One of the more visible artifacts of this affinity is the old bandstand near the Iolani Palace. The Royal Hawaiian band plays here every lunchtime on Friday barring other engagements.

I remember seeing that bandstand when we were there but your "then" shot really adds to the significance of the structure.

Interesting photos. That first one especially has a "regal" charm and old age feel to it. When was each photo taken?

I must admit, I hope there are still heaps of original non-european influenced Hawaiian things around. (I've not been to your area!! but would love to go sometime).

Thanks for sharing

Paul

Paul, et al

Fortunately, there are still aspects to the Hawaiian Royalty that are pre-European that abound today. Food, mythology, domestic wisdom, Sailing canoes etc. The revitalization of the culture is alive and well.

The fact is however, the Hawaiian Royalty were awed by the European royalty sufficiently, to build palaces, Royal Mausoleums, orders of chivalry, visit London and the British royalty, Crown jewels, etc.

The first shot is not dated but comes from a public domain collection that was probably taken in the early 1900s, the second within a couple of years.
