Description
A few men look out the windows of a train while a group of men look up towards the train windows. The caption above the photo reads, "Internment Bound--Japanese-Canadians get in a final farewell as a train, bound for an internment camp, leaves Vancouver in 1942. No Canadian of Japanese descent was ever shown to be disloyal, and four decades later, the 10,000 survivors still await a government apology and financial redress." The photograph is an Associated Press LaserPhoto.
The Newspaper Photograph Collection is made up of photographs that were printed in the Long Beach Press-Telegram and Independent newspapers, between the 1950s and early 2000s.
