Discovering Honolulu's hidden architectural gems

Like many people who commute in and out of downtown Honolulu, Pam Chambers zipped to and from Niu Valley without noticing the details. But when she moved to a place on Queen Street and started walking to her Bishop Street office, she started to notice the architectural details that makes that area unique. That's when she started taking pictures with her iPhone, editing them on her laptop and researching the history.

From that came her new book titled "There and Back Again". Filled with pictures and interesting facts about the area from Kakaako to Chinatown, Chambers said that locals who were born and raised here have often never noticed the details she sees. Or they think they know the area where a picture was shot, but they're surprised to find they are wrong. Chambers said it's part of the fun of her project.

If you would like her book, you can contact her directly via email at or by phone (808) 377-5679.
