For all you kama'ainas out there
VJ Day, Honolulu August 14, 1945 This will make your day.
About this video, the owner wrote: "My Dad shot this film along Kalakaua Ave. in Waikiki capturing spontaneous celebrations that broke out upon first hearing news of the Japanese surrender. Kodachrome 16mm film. This is what Waikiki used to look like, before all the high rises. Notice the street car tracks in the pavement."
