1936-1937 Kalai Pineapple Parade Photos


These photos were forwarded to me by mds725 over at the Ukulele Underground.  They were taken between 1936-37.  The float here is covered in Kalai Pineapple Ukuleles.  Thanks for the photos Mark!!!

As commented by  Kamaka: “those are actually Kalai, not Kamaka pineapples. Sam Sr. let Kalai use the pineapple decal on their ukuleles. Dates sound about right because in the 40′s, Kalai changed their name to Kalae to make it sound more Hawaiian. This information is from Fred Kamaka, Sr.”

  1. Wonderful historic photos, but those are actually Kalai, not Kamaka pineapples. Sam Sr. let Kalai use the pineapple decak on their ukuleles. Dates sound about right because in the 40’s, Kalai changed their name to Kalae to make it sound more Hawaiian. This information is from Fred Kamaka, Sr.
