This is the entrance to the closed Waikiki Natatorium War Memorial.  Opened on August 24, 1927, the birthday of Olympic Gold Medalist Duke Kahanamoku this structure and its saltwater swimming pool was built to honor the 101 who died and 10,000 who served in Wolrd War I from Hawaii.  It is on both the National and State Registers of Historic Places but fell into disrepair.  The state started restoration but ran into trouble with some department of health salt water pool rules halting construction.  More tomorrow.
