Description
Full title:Mr. and Mrs. Julian Piazzo, Rt. 2, Box 44, Gilroy, California, owners and operators of a large ranch and prune orchard, have employed the family of Shigeru Imura and would like another evacuee family just as soon as material can be obtained for enlarging the living accommodations. The Imuras, father, mother, Nancy, a daughter, and son, Tom, left Gila River on May 9, and are all on the place occupying comfortable quarters of their own. There are two other sons, one in the army and the other relocated in Nevada. Mr. Imura helps his employer in the prune orchard, while the rest of the family grow strawberries. The Piazzos having given them this concession on a crop sharing basis. The Imuras are very happy in their new environment, and think the declare their intention of employing still more of the returnees. Imura and his employer Piazzo are here seen in the prune orchard which they are irrigating. There is a bumper crop this year and a yield of three hundred tons is expected from the forty acres. Photographer: Mace, Charles E. Gilroy, California.
