Description
Full title:In a beauty parlor a few minutes' walk from her home in New York City, Mrs. Jimmy Hara is engaged in the occupation she followed in Los Angeles prior to evacuation. With her husband and their son Howard, 3, Mrs. Hara went to the Turlock Assembly Center in May, 1942. The following July the Hara family went to Gila River, where Mrs. Hara was a beautician in the cooperative beauty shop, and Mr. Hara a mess timekeeper. Mr. Hara came to New York in April, 1944, and shortly thereafter was employed as a bar waiter in a hotel night club. In May Mrs. Hara and Howard joined him in New York. Mrs. Hara secured her present position when she noticed a sign in the beauty parlor window while out shopping one day. She stepped in to apply for the job and was immediately hired. Her father, Sam Saito, and her two brothers, James and Joseph, are at Heart Mountain. Photographer: Iwasaki, Hikaru New York, New York.
