ala wai canal 1920 to 1928

 

Remember the pillar I asked you to pay attention to before? To the right of the pillar is a drainage system. The hotel installed this because the parking lot floods every time it rains. Sometimes so bad that all the cars were under water.

The flooding is caused by the 'Apuakehau stream. Even though we can't see it any more, it still runs underground. When it rains it shows itself above ground.
