A trip through the Hawaiian Islands 7 - reels pictures - 7 and lecture showing native life in the islands and the world's largest active volcano Kilauea in active eruption...

Portland: Holly Press, n.d. [ca. 1920-25.]. Very large advertising broadside in three sections, each approximately 28" x 42" and approximately 84" x 42" overall, printed in black on tan paper; previous folds, but essentially fine and handsome. The type face, along with the fact that the Kilauea was erupting frequently in the early 1920s point to the first half of the 1920s as a date of printing (see above). The illustrated film program is almost certainly based on the films of Robert Kates Bonine (1862-1923), a one-time employee of Thomas Edison, - the only person at that time who had a body of film work on the Hawaiian Islands. This, like the item above, was one of a small group found at one time in the basement of a building in Portland, Oregon. Item #43768
