Manapua haggis, Yum!

What kind of garment?

Somehow I can't imagine that stringless tops were all the rage back then. Not even on the laid-back Sandwich Islands.

What an odd thing to "specialize" in - mixed-race Hawaiians? And one of the accursed pictorialists, to boot - photographers who did everything they could to make a photograph not look like a photograph.

After a little research, I see this was done for purposes of "enthography"?! Very strange.

Wow. Patrick Swayze must have been related to this handsome man. But could he dance?
