Excerpt from Wikipedia - "In 1959, Ala Moana Center became the largest shopping mall in the United States, only to be overshadowed years later by new retail developments across the nation."

Anybody know if that is Kona or Kapiolani cutting across the pic?

Good question! I'm assuming it's Kapiolani since the telephone poles are running along the street.

Nelson, I believe you correct. It's Kapiolani Blvd. I bet da locals wished there was a Femme Nu back then.
