The Time - August 14, 1945 - VJ-Day!

The Bravest Generation

by Richard Sullivan

65 Years Ago my Dad shot this film along Kalakaua Ave. in Waikiki capturing spontaneous celebrations that broke out upon first hearing news of the Japanese surrender. Kodachrome 16mm film: God Bless Kodachrome, right? I was able to find an outfit (MyMovieTransfer.com) to do a much superior scan of this footage to what I had previously posted, so I re-did this film and replaced the older version There are more still images from this amazing day, in color, at DiscoveringHawaii.com. - Richard Sullivan
