Paniolo Online Photograph Exhibition

In commemoration of Archives Month 2019, the Hawaiʻi State Archives is pleased to announce the digital release of the Paniolo Online Photograph Exhibition. The 177 images in this online digital exhibition are found in the State Archives’ main Photograph Collection and presented as high-resolution preservation color scans. The original photographic prints, which are kept at the State Archives, have been reproduced with color calibration targets and are available uncropped at 600dpi. Along with the high-quality digitized images, the reverse of these unique prints have also been scanned to offer some contextual information about the image. Please note that the information written on the reverse of these prints has not been verified but presented for informational purposes only.

Included in this collection are:

  • Photos of horses and casual riders (PP-2-12)
  • Cattle ranching throughout the Islands (PP-13-5   &   PP-13-6)
  • Cattle shipping on Hawai‘i Island (PP-13-7)
  • And a folder of withdrawn photographs that were removed from public circulation due to their delicate or deteriorating condition (PPWD-2-6)

As a reminder, the Hawaiʻi State Archives is a government institution, and therefore the State Archives does not charge permission fees nor claim the copyright to these images. It is the user’s obligation to determine and satisfy copyright or other use restrictions when publishing or otherwise distributing materials found in the Archives’ collections.
