Aloha, O’ahu

Hawaii has charmed vacationers for centuries.

These happy tourists of the year 1973 are experiencing a taste of Polynesian culture. In this photo, they are learning to hula. Back then, airlines and O’ahu resorts partnered to bring tourists to tropical Waikiki with packaged vacations. And tourists were intrigued, at least partly, by the 1970s’ hit television show “Hawaii Five-0.”
