Description

ON verso:
No. 273. PUBLIC GROUNDS OF IOLANI PALA.CK, HONOLULU, HAWAIIAN ISLANDS.
As the Hawaiian Islands are surrounded by thousands of miles of even temperatured water, its climate is necessarily equitable and mild. During nine months of the year the northeast trade winds discharge their burden of vapor against the huge mountains on the islands, so that on the northeast slopes up to 200 inches of rain descend, while the opposite sides are arid. The greatest variety in the rainfall prevails, often on different points of the same plantation. The islands are volcanic. Hawaii is composed largely of three volcanoes, one of which, Mauna Kea, is the loftiest peak in the Pacific. Mauna Loa is one of the largest active volcanoes in the world, with a circular crater, 8,000 feet in diameter and nearly vertical walls, 600 feet high on the inner side.
In Honolulu the extreme range of temperature throughout the year is between 52 and 88 degrees, with about 50 inches of annual rainfall. The city is well laid out in American fashion. The gardens are beautiful, picturesque with tropical trees and redolent with gorgeous flowers.
