Description
Full title:That enterprising Issei can make new lives for themselves in strange communities is proved by the case of George Inai, who before the evacuation order operated a grocery store in Sacramento, California. Now he runs a thriving grocery concern in Denver, Colorado. He is shown here waiting on a customer in his Denver, Colorado, grocery store. Inai, married and father of four children, the oldest of high-school age, was evacuated to Tule Lake. During segregation at the center, he was transferred to the Topaz, Utah, center. He relocated from Topaz to Denver in October, 1944, and lost no time in opening his store. Like most persons of Japanese ancestry who formerly lived on the West Coast, he feels occasional nostalgic twinges but he's doing so well in Denver that he thinks he'll stay there. California, he has concluded, is after all only one state in a large nation. Photographer: Aoyama, Bud Denver, Colorado.
