Ithaca, NY The combination of old tickets, postcards with palm trees, faded photographs of volcanoes and surfers, programs, and breakfast menus with items like “Taro Mano Waffles” combine to give online visitors to the Aloha Hawaii Scrapbook at the University of Hawai’i at Manoa Library a feeling of tropical glamour from early 20th century island history.
