Full title:Isamu Tanaka, formerly resident of Orange County, is shown pitchforking asparagus fresh cut from the fields onto a conveyor belt. Other workers inside the cannery clean and sort the asparagus on this belt and from this point onward the grass, as it is called, moves continuously through various operations until it is finally canned ready for delivery to various Government departments which take most of the cannery's output. The cannery is operated by the Illinois Mushroom Company, Naperville, Illinois. V. E. Peterson, owner of the plant, states that without the 60 Japanese Americans secured on a seasonal job basis through the War Relocation Authority, much if not all of Naperville's large asparagus crop would have been lost. Isamu Tanaka came to Naperville from the Poston Relocation Center in Arizona. Naperville, Illinois.
