## Abstract

Let X be a one-dimensional metric space and ℍ be the Hawaiian earring.(1) Each homomorphism from π_{1}(ℍ) to π_{1}(X) is induced from a continuous map up to the base-point-change isomorphism on π_{1}(X).(2) Let X be a one-dimensional Peano continuum. Then X has the same homotopy type as that of ℍ if and only if π_{1}(X) is isomorphic to π_{1}(ℍ), if and only if X has a unique point at which X is not semi-locally simply connected. (3) Let X and Y be one-dimensional Peano continua which are not semi-locally simply connected at any point. Then, X and Y are homeomorphic if and only if π_{1}(X) and π_{1}(Y) are isomorphic. Moreover, each isomorphism from π_{1}(X) to π_{1}(Y) is induced by a homeomorphism from X to Y up to the base-point-change-isomorphism.
