JUNE 1929: Fort Street bustles with cars and pedestrians in the above Paradise of the Pacific photo taken from King Street.

June 1949: "Alexander H.F. Castro, active young chairman of the Honolulu Junior Chamber of Commerce fair committee, referred to the 49th State Fair as 'the biggest thing since Kamehameha conquered the Islands,'" reports Paradise of the Pacific, predecessor to HONOLULU Magazine, see photo at right. Although Hawai'i was still a territory, the chamber had sponsored the 49th State Fair to promote the campaign for statehood. When Alaska joined the union first, becoming the 49th state, the event's name was promptly changed to the 50th State Fair.

June 1969: Mike Nealon, Mike Adams, Larry Lincomb, Rudy de Rochemont and Kip Wildern are the members of Goldrush, one of a string of local bands known for playing a new, almost indefinable type of music-head music. "[Head music authorities] deny the technical definition that links it to LSD-inspired improvisations, but all agree that no piece of head music is played the same because there is no score," writes HONOLULU Magazine. "The characteristic of head music is the feeling of the moment which cannot be recorded or repeated. This does not necessarily apply to rock but includes any music from Ravi Shankar to Dave Brubeck, as long as it emanates from free expression."
