Wo On store

The old Wo On Store in North Kohala.

Another post on the theme of ‘Glow,’ this week’s WordPress photo challenge.

Early morning light illuminates the Wo On Store at Halawa. This was one of many shops in North Kohala back in the sugar plantation days. A lot of these businesses were run by immigrants. The name ‘Wo On’ means ‘harmony and peace.’ The building now houses the Rankin Gallery.
