Description
Full title:Helping their father, Tom Toyoji Yamane, Issei from the Gila River Relocation Center, pick apples in the orchard surrounding their new home in Wilmington, Delaware, are three of the four Yamane children, Masao, 2 ; Mariko, 7 ; and Michiko, 10. Not shown are Mrs. Yamane and her son Atsushi, 13, who was attending a meeting of his Boy Scout troop. The entire family left Gila River together in June 1944 and resided temporarily at the New York hostel while Mr. Yamane worked out the family's resettlement plans with the aid of the WRA relocation offices in New York and Philadelphia. Mr. Yamane is now manager of the produce department in a new food store operated by the Wilmington Cooperative Society, Inc. Members of the co-op helped him find the cottage the Yamanes now occupy, and neighbors lent or gave them many household articles when they moved in. Mariko, Michiko, and Atsushi attend a nearby school. Before evacuation Mr. Yamane had his own produce business for four years at Huntington, California. His brothers Hideichi and Mitsuzo are at Gila River. Mrs. Yamane's mother, Mrs. Taki Fujii, is at Heart Mountain, and her brother Jim is in Denver, Colorado. Photographer: Iwasaki, Hikaru Wilmington, Delaware.
