An early color chrome postcard printed in Germany with undivided back, published by Wall, Nichols & Co., Ltd., Honolulu as their No. 12, featuring 'Canoe Surf Riding, Honolulu, T. H.,' (note the female passenger in the canoe in the forefront holding on to her hat!).

The card is dated and was posted from Honolulu, June 21, 1907 [flag cancel], to Luxembourg-Ville, received July 11, 1907, properly franked with the 2c Washington shield definitive.  In the background you see a very unspoiled Diamond Head with pine trees lining the beach.  Those were the days!
