City Directory Sunday: Honolulu, Hawaii Territory, 1940

The Seattle Public Library has a wonderful regional collection of city directories. Some of these directories date from the beginnings of the place’s existence and others are more recent. A good number of gaps in chronological coverage exist in many of the series, but enough of them are consistent time-wise.

This week I’d like to spotlight the Polk-Husted Directory Company’s Honolulu City and Territory of Hawaii’s Directory. Here is a column from page 380 of the 1939-1940 directory. Enjoy.
