All our ukulele ads are online! On Hamilton Library’s Flickr and Pinterest sites, that is.
Most are from U.S. Mainland newspapers. Ukulele was once a fad on the Mainland, so I searched “ukulele” in newspapers from all states but Hawaii.
Since upload, the ukulele ads instantly became popular in our collection. Many viewers seemed to find them through searching “ukulele” on Flickr.
Now we’re uploading Hawaiian souvenir ads, mostly from Hawaii Newspapers. Continuing with the Mainland’s fascination with Hawaii in the early 1900s, soon we’ll upload ads for Hawaiian music records!
