Description
Full title:This picture shows Mrs. Tsuru Toguchi (right), age 42, formerly of San Francisco, California, and Topaz, Mrs. Sue Ogawa (center), age 58, formerly of Hood River, Oregon and Tule Lake, and Mrs. Chiyo Kajiwara, formerly of Oakland, California, and Topaz, engaged in hand sewing work at the Lampl Knit Company, Cleveland, Ohio. Also present are fellow workers, Nettie Rosen (center) and Vina Jenkins (left). (Three minority groups are represented in this picture). According to the employer, the three Issei women are getting along beautifully with their work and are very rapid learners. The three Issei enjoy their work very much as they can sit down while working and can engage in conversation with each other and their fellow workers throughout the day. Lampl Knit is one of the large textile factories in this city and employs a number of Nisei in addition to the Issei pictured above. Photographer: Iwasaki, Hikaru Cleveland, Ohio.
