65 Years ago Richard's Dad shot this film along Kalakaua Ave. in Waikiki capturing spontaneous celebrations that broke out upon first hearing news of the Japanese surrender. Kodachrome 16mm film: God Bless Kodachrome, right? He was able to find a outfit (mymovietransfer.com) to do a scan of this ultra rare footage. There are more still images from this amazing day, in color, at discoveringhawaii.com
