Post Office and Courthouse, Settlement Store, Gas Station

-A A +A
1934, Bjarne Dahl. Bounded by Damien, Kamehameha, Beretania, and School sts.

The solitary gas pump, the encircling verandah of the post office, and the front porch of the store evoke small-town life in an earlier era. The hipped roofs further contribute to the tranquility of the place. The hollow tiles for the three buildings were manufactured on-site, using black and white sands.
