Click to enlargePearl Harbor - Images of an American Memorial

Written by Allan Seiden

Long before the infamous day of December 7, 1941 when Pearl Harbor was attacked, it was a tropical lagoon fed by streams that lowed down from the Ko‘olau mountains used by the Hawaiian people as an extensive system of fishponds. In 1940, the U.S. headquartered its Pacific Fleet there, America was at war, and Hawai‘i was at the helm as the central defense post of the Pacific. Pearl Harbor: Images of an American Memorial is a photographic memorial documenting Pearl Harbor’s past through violent attacks and years of reflection and repair. Filled with rare photographs, Pearl Harbor is shown as it once was, providing context to the events of the “date which will live in infamy.”
