Kailuakid states:

We recently discovered several vintage, never before seen, 16mm films at a garage sale which were taken during a worldwide tour in 1940. This digital conversion of a short portion of those films depict the pre-tsunami town of Hilo, Hawaii. Music: “Hilo My Home Town” “Hilo Hula” “Kaua I Ka Huahua’i” by Ku’uipo Kumukahi

Feel like saying something about this?
