Measuring 7 5/8" by 9 5/8", this hand colored photo dates from the 1920's or 1930's and depicts a view of snow capped Mauna Kea, with Hilo and Hilo bay in the foreground. With good color and no fading or stains, this is an excellent piece of Hawaiian history. Unsigned, the photographer is unknown. There are remnants of brown paper tape on the back, so it was likely in a photo album at some time, but has been stored in an acid free folder with other photos, for several decades, and was part of a collection of photography from the 1920's to the 1960's. There is a slight crimp in the paper in the upper left, in the sky area, but only shows when examining the photo closely. Large, early photos of Hawaiian scenes are rare, and this is a beautiful and fine example of such sought after works.
