Description
Full title:Mrs. Asaka hands out soda pop to neighborhood children in the grocery store which she and her husband own. Harry Asaka, Issei, first relocated to Washington, D.C., in August, 1943, from Gila River Relocation Center. He worked as a farm hand on one of the farms near Washington. In November, 1944, he opened his grocery store in Washington, being the fourth person of Japanese descent to open a store here and the second relocatee to do so. With Harry, is his wife, Irene, a Nisei, born and reared near Ogden, Utah, and their three children Ronald, 10, Dennis, 8, and John, 4 years old. The grocery business is not new to Harry as he used to operate one in California. He thinks that there are excellent opportunities for other stores in Washington.
