Waikiki Natatorium

The Waikiki Natatorium is a beautiful Beaux Arts structure and an endangered historic landmark site in the United States. After seeing it in many old pictures and films, I wish I could see it from inside but it has never been open as long as I’ve been alive. There’s a pretty long political controversy of what’s holding up its restoration or its tearing down, and as an artist and lover of all things old, I only hope it is restored in my lifetime!
