1932: MAUI VISITORS BUREAU MAP sepia tone

from 18.00

Published by the Maui Visitors Bureau in 1932, this map provides a geographic snap shot of Maui at that time.  The economic heart of the island was at Pauwela as the Haiku cannery was in place and functioning.   The longest stretch of island railroad connected Pauwela to Kahului harbor where sugar was loaded on ships bound for California.   The only other sections of rail were in the West Maui area hauling sugar cane to the landing at Kaaanapali and eventually to Pioneer Mill in Lahaina.  The airport was located at Maalaea where Clippers landed on water in the bay.   Going up-country was a short trip on a farm road from Makena to Ulupalakua.  The Baldwin High School ancient battle ground, Kula Sanitarium are other noted landmarks.   The common areas were predominantly occupied by cattle grazing as this is before large scale sugar or pineapple was in place.
