“Facing the Modern World” Inspiration

When I was writing this story, I was looking for something to spark a conversation between a King onf one island nation and a loyal subject of another.

I remembered a drawing that was in the Hawaii State Archives, attributed to the King’s fine creative nature… his thriving inventive spirit. He was the Merrie Monarch, but he was also a man with a sharp mind.

The image shows a fish-like creation on the bottom half, with what looks like steam coming out of the rear portion of it. That image gave me the ‘conversation’ between my two main characters. It may not have been ‘exactly’ what the king had in mind… but I’m used to my characters having a mind of their own…500px-Invention_sketches_by_Kalakaua
