2022 Hawaiian History Calendar
The 2022 Hawaiian Historical Society (HHS) calendar is now available! The theme for this historical calendar is drawn from a kapa-covered photograph album, recently donated to HHS, filled with photographs from Hawai‘i in the late 1800s. Kapi‘olani Park, with Lē‘ahi (Diamond Head) in the background, is featured on the cover of this year’s calendar. The image, taken from along Kalākaua Ave. before it had been paved, is one of many incredible images in the HHS collection.
In these striking black and white photographs, the 19th Century in Hawai‘i is explored through a wide range of subjects, including many rare images of Honolulu such as Kalākaua’s Coronation parade and ceremonies at ‘Iolani Palace in 1883. The calendar’s pages are filled with notes for significant dates and interesting facts about Hawaiʻi’s history. There is no other compendium of important historical dates in Hawai‘i, edited yearly and accessible to the public like the HHS Calendar.
