July 22, 1940 newspaper ads from Honolulu speak of another time

There's a really old house on my listing at 980 Kamehameiki Rd in Kula Maui.  One room is papered with old newspapers from 1940, the year the home was built.  Most of the papers have come off but a few are still legible.  I snapped some pictures.  Haunting images.

I often find old newspapers and walls of houses that have been repossessed. Around here that I can get back into the 1890s. When I lived in Hawaii I thought it was too humid for a newspaper to survive very long in the walls without the bugs or termites getting to them..

Hello Georgie ... those are some old news papers and I love the window photographs, and are those clouds reflecting on the glass in the last photo? Your post has been featured to the group:

Paul and Bob - thanks for checking out the old papers and windows. Yes Kula has a dry enough climate to preserve things a little better.

Georgie, I had an old Victorian that was "papered" on one wall of some 1800's newspapers! It was quite the find. And on top of it, the owners had photos of the original builders of the home. Such a glorious way to show history! They even had a "timecapsule" buried in a column when they updated the home. 

Ahhhh...history is so wonderful. Thank you for these.

Georige, These are very nicely captured photos. I can't help but notice the prices of clothing in that time! Men's dress shirt $1.25...imagine that!
