35 Fascinating Kodachrome Slides Capture Hawaiian Shows in the 1950s

Hawaii is a state in the Western United States, located in the Pacific Ocean about 2,000 miles (3,200 km) from the U.S. mainland. It is the only U.S. state outside North America, the only state that is an archipelago, and the only state in the tropics.

Hawaii comprises nearly the entire Hawaiian archipelago, 137 volcanic islands spanning 1,500 miles (2,400 km) that are physiographically and ethnologically part of the Polynesian subregion of Oceania.

Of the 50 U.S. states, Hawaii is the eighth-smallest in land area and the 11th-least populous, ranks 13th in population density. Two-thirds of the population lives on O’ahu, home to the state’s capital and largest city, Honolulu.

Hawaii is among the country’s most diverse states, owing to its central location in the Pacific and over two centuries of migration. As one of only six majority-minority states, it has the country’s only Asian American plurality, its largest Buddhist community, and the largest proportion of multiracial people. Consequently, it is a unique melting pot of North American and East Asian cultures, in addition to its indigenous Hawaiian heritage.

Although its relative isolation results in one of the highest costs of living in the United States, Hawaii is the third-wealthiest state. These fascinating Kodachrome slides from ixxidust were taken by his father that show Hawaiian shows around 1953.
