These slides are from Hawaii in 1949, and are turning 68 years old on APRIL 21st. They were a RUSH order made by KODAK HAWAII LTD. dated April 21, 1949. These photos were taken by Kenneth L Murphy. After doing some research I finally found some documents of Kenneth and his family. Kenneth L Murphy was born in 1929.
This is a Passenger List to Hawaii dated July 22, 1931.
His father George Murphy and mother Blanche Murphy were originally from Canada. Kenneth would have been 20 years old when he took these photos. In 1949 Hawaii wasn’t even a US state yet. We had just had a World War and Harry S. Truman was president. For the first time ever, the LUCKY LADY II (B-50 Superfortress) was able to complete the first non-stop Airplane flight around the world. These photos were taken in time when people were just starting to travel the world.
