The Post War Forties - 1940s

The 1940s opened as a continuation of the 1930s with a Hawaiian craze still sweeping the nation.
But, on December 7, 1941, Pearl Harbor was attacked, and everything changed forever.
Personnel and equipment flooded in, as Hawaii became a staging area for the war in the pacific theatre.
Once peace returned, Honolulu experienced a post war boom.
Baby Boomers were being born, new radio stations were signing on, traditional fish ponds were being filled in, subdivisions were being built, hotels were being opened, new businesses were being started, supermarkets were being launched, and our first “Miss Hawaii” was named.
The island were undergoing rapid growth, and the Territory of Hawaii would never be the same again!
