This is the Hale`iwa Hotel on the North Shore at Wailua, O`ahu, probably around the end of the 19th century. The photo is from the album of Edith Christophersen, who graduated from Punahou in 1911 and came to Seattle to get credentials as a nurse at Seattle General Hospital. It was sent in by her son Bill Trimingham of Seattle.
