1926 Waikiki

Click on the image to enlarge
My dad was 7 1/2 when the photos were taken - his name was Robert John (Bob) Brooks. He was an only child and lived in Chicago with his mom and dad. The family took a cruise to Honolulu on the SS President Wilson departing San Francisco June 26 and arriving in Honolulu July 2, 1926. I was able to zero in on the dates using where I found the passenger list for the ship (attached). The photographs are 8x10s and have the name of a Chicago photo lab on the prints, so I suspect that they were taken by family members, not cruise ship employees.

He passed away at age 92 and I am just now sorting through all the old albums and boxes of photographs. I knew these photos existed, but only just now came across them. – Carol Parker

Digital Watermarking of our images – Public Notice

As part of our commitment to protecting our image donors, the Surfing Heritage Foundation has begun using digital watermarking on ALL of our images, including those images seen on our website. This watermark is not visible to the eye, but is easily seen by many computer programs such at Photoshop and other image editing programs. In addition, we have also purchased a “watermark spider” that crawls the Internet specifically looking for any images that contain our SHF watermark. The Surfing Heritage Foundation is prepared to take the appropriate action should we find any illegal or unlicensed usage of images from our files.
