Sugarcane Days: Remembering Maui’s Hawaiian Commercial & Sugar Company

Sugarcane Days is a collection of photos from the archives of the Alexander & Baldwin Sugar Museum. Most are from the in-house newspaper, the HC&S Breeze, published from 1948 to 1968. Stories from the paper provided insight into plantation life, from the hard work of immigrant laborers to the innovative spirit of plantation people to the strong community life of the plantation camps. Published in time for the closing of the HC&S plantation, the last sugar plantation in Hawai`i, Sugarcane Days offers a nostalgic look back at an important era of island history.
