Description
Two girls sit on beds in the barracks at Manzanar, in front of shelves containing their personal belongings. A caption, printed in the Feb. 25, 1983, edition of the Long Beach Independent reads, "1942 photo showed Japanese-Americans apparently happily interned at Manzanar camp. The accompanying caption said a picture of Gen. Douglas MacArthur hung in a place of honor and that the girls were writing friends to tell about their new lives." Second note attached to the back of the photo reads, "Censored 1942 Army photo puts a happy spin on life at Manzanar, in the Owens Valley."
black and white, 8 x 10 inches
