Description
Full title:James Shimokawa, his wife Jennie and their little son Gary, age 3, shown living at the Evergreen Hostel, Los Angeles. They left Manzanar in 1943 to go to Idaho, then moved to Denver, and on June 1, stepped out of a taxi in front of the hostel, where they were welcomed by Rev. S. Kowta. The Evergreen Hostel is a quiet part of Los Angeles on the east side, and occupies the building used before the war as a Presbyterian Church School for Japanese children. Rev. S. Kowta, Presbyterian Minister, and Esther Rhoades manage the hostel, under the auspices of the Presbyterian Church and the American Friends. Eighty to ninety people--men, women, and children--are accommodated at one time at the hostel. Room and meals are only $1 a day to start, and $1.50 after the first week. Photographer: Mace, Charles E. Los Angeles, California.
