Description
Full title:Employed as shoe repairman, Mitsutaro Miyahara is one of many Isseis who have made Kansas City, Missouri, their new home. Known as either Pop or Jimmy, Mr. Miyahara formerly operated a shoe repair shop in Sacramento, California. Relocating on July 26, 1943, from the Tule Lake Relocation Center where he managed the shoe repair shop, he was instrumental in securing positions for other Essei workers in Kansas City. Mr. Miyahara has rented a large house belonging to his employer, Mr. Ventola, and is prepared to provide reasonably priced but comfortable accommodations to new re-settlers to Kansas City. He is shown at work with Mr. Ventola. Photographer: Iwasaki, Hikaru Kansas City, Missouri.
