Description
Full title:The Mount Eden Nursery and Greenhouses, owned and operated by the Shibatas of Tule Lake. The family originally relocated to Chicago, Illinois, and returned to their home at Mt. Eden soon after revocation of the Army Exclusion Order. Jinjiro Shibata, the Issei father, his son, Yoshimi, manager of the enterprise, and a daughter Ailene are now at the nursery. Three other sons, Yoshito, Yoshikumi and Yoshiye, are in the army and the fourth, Yoshimi is up for induction within the next few days. The nursery is a complete unit consisting of 34 greenhouses, living quarters, boiler house, packing house and other necessary buildings. Roses exclusively are raised for the wholesale market. There has been no difficulty in marketing. The Shibatas employ ten to twelve persons of Japanese ancestry and a number of Caucasians. The evacuees employed are from five different centers. Here, Tokuya Yasuoka, left, evacuated to Gila River, relocated to Chicago, and returned to California with Shibata in March; and Mikio Yamamoto, who came out in April from Minidoka, are seen in one of the greenhouses working with the roses. Photographer: Mace, Charles E. Mt. Eden, California.
