I was reading an article about the rise and fall of Pan-American Airlines, and the first photo they had up was this.
I know that beach. That's Diamond Head in the back right, and that's Waikiki Beach, Honolulu, Oahu.
It looks like this today:
I've stayed there, when my father was assigned to Hawaii many moons ago. But I look at the top photo, and then at what it is now, and I just kind of get a little sad.
There are still plenty of places in Hawaii that look like the former. But chances are you'll never get to see them. I know I won't.
