Description
Full title:Relocation from Heart Mountain presented few problems to the family of Eiichi Sakauye, San Jose pear grower and his family. Mostly it was a case of reopening the home on Trimble Road, and gathering up the two sisters, Kimiko and Ayako, who were students in a New York School of Dress Designing. Now they are all back raising luscious San Jose pears, except Isao, brother of Eiichi, who is foreman of a defense plant in Cleveland, Ohio. With Eiichi are Yuwakichi, his father, mother, Tamae, Kimiko, Ayako, and younger brother, Kenji. They are shown here in front of the family home. Eiichi was one of the first evacuees back to the San Jose District. With Kenji, he returned on December 15th, 1944. His parents followed on January 22nd of this year and the girls arrived, after completing their school courses in New York, early in March, 1945. The Sakauye place is a 50-acre pear orchard and 10-acres additional of celery and bell peppers. Crops are excellent and reception better than before evacuation, Eiichi reports. Photographer: Iwasaki, Hikaru San Jose, California.
