1960 Hawaiian Airlines – Map of the State of Hawaii
By: Hawaiian Airlines
Date: 1960 (circa)
Dimensions: 11 x 16.5 inches (28 cm x 42 cm)
This is a decorative pictorial map of the Hawaiian Islands produced by Hawaiian Airlines in the 1960s as part of a promotional travel pamphlet. The map features long distance air routes labeled “to the Mainland,” “to the Orient,” and “to the South Pacific,” as well as shorter routes between the islands. Each of the interisland routes indicate the distance between points, the time of air travel, and the model plane used (all of which seem to be the DC-9 Jet).
Each island is decorated with flowers, animals, people taking part in local activities, and various elements of Hawaiian culture. Similar to the Hawaiian Pineapple Company map of the 1930s this map features a pineapple on almost every island, indicating the location of various plantations. The sea is filled with marine life, shells, coral, and a variety of ships and boats representing culture, industry, and travel. A compass rose made up of four tiki men can be found in the top right portion of the map.
Condition: This map is in A condition, originally folded with two pin sized holes at the fold intersections that have been reinforced on the verso with archival materials.
