The extended title is taken from a nearly identical Stratemeyer painting that was created around the same time. That painting was sold by Vallejo Gallery in Newport Beach. This example in a newer frame, original stretcher bars, overall very fine condition. The steep and narrow Pali Road was the shortest passage to Kaneohe and Kailua from Honolulu.
Provenance: Originally acquired from the artist to Francis Blakeley McStocker (1854 - 1915) who arrived in Hawaii in 1883. In Honolulu, McStocker was in charge of the Honolulu Steamship Company and Wharf, which is where he became acquainted with Stratemeyer, who was also employed there. This and several other paintings by Stratemeyer passed by descent within McStocker's family to the great great grandaughter Cassandra Dunn of Berkeley in 2016. Purchased from Ms. Dunn by Douglas Frazer Fine Art, Ltd in the fall of 2016. With Douglas Frazer since 2016
