17 Rare Photos From Hawaii That Will Take You Straight To The Past

The Hawaiian Islands were prosperous long before they became a state, or even a United States territory, for that matter. These photographs, taken in the late 1800s and early 1900s, give us a glimpse into life before Hawaii joined America, when the monarchy thrived and life was much simpler.

Hawaii sure has changed quite a bit since these photographs were taken. Do you have any vintage photographs of Hawaii to share with us?
