Description
Full title:Home again and happy! Heart Mountain Special No. 2, carrying nearly 100 Santa Clara County evacuees, pulled into 16th Street Station in Oakland around 1:00 P.M.--three hours late but no one seemed to care. Relocation Officers from San Jose and a Reports Officer from the Northern California Area office boarded the train in Oakland and delivered a formal Welcome Home. Came then, the always interesting ferry ride across San Francisco Bay, a taxi dash across busy bustling San Francisco to Third and Townsend and the final lap on the Three Five in a special car down the peninsula to Santa Clara County. In Palo Alto, Mountain View and Sunnyvale friends--Caucasian and Japanese--were waiting with cars and words of genuine welcome. Due to San Jose Depot congestion, the main body left the train in Santa Clara, where a large crowd waited to deliver evacuees to their final destinations. Reception plans throughout were worked out by WRA and the Santa Clara County Chapter of the Council for Civic Unity. Photographer: Iwasaki, Hikaru San Francisco, California.
