Honolulu's home=grown dept store Liberty House got it's name the same way:"In 1918 at the height of World War I, H. Hackfeld & Co. was seized by the American government as alien property (since many of the Hackfeld and Isenberg heirs still lived in Germany), and was sold to a newly formed consortium, American Factors. At the same time the B.F. Ehlers store was renamed The Liberty House in response to anti-German sentiment. With Hackfeld's huge sugar plantations and land interests, American Factors (later known as Amfac) became one of Hawaii's Big Five landowners."http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Liberty_HouseALOHA from HonoluluComfortSpiral =^..^= . <3 . >< } } (°>
Not much liberty for the cows lol
Oh, I didn't know that. Quite interesting!
Interesting fact, but I find it kind of strange. Hamburgers and liberty don't equate, at least for me. LOL
I'd say we have grown much more sophisticated in the Modern Era. Then I remember...Freedom Fries.Wasn't sauerkraut also called "Liberty Cabbage?"
Well, that's weird.
I'll take that with some Freedom Fries and a Diet Coke, because God Bless 'Murica.
interesting... now I'm craving one!~Pau www.lilbitsofchic.com
Amazing post and so Interesting http://abdelkhalekleblog.blogspot.com/
Probably because Hamburg is a city in Germany.
I find those quirky names annoying. Like Freedom Fries. Just call them what they are. They aren't going to taste any different by changing the name.
