Description
Full title:Mrs. Thomas Taneichi Kamikawa is preparing supper in the kitchen of the 4-room family unit which she occupies with her husband and two children, Alden, 3, and Karen, 1, in one of the houses recently constructed by the Federal Housing Administration at Seabrook Farms Village, Bridgeton, N.J., for the families of employees of Seabrook Farms and the Deerfield Packing Corporation. The Kamikawa family was the first one with children to move into the new dwellings. Mr. Kamikawa works in the cold storage warehouse, which is one of the many positions held by evacuees at Seabrook Farms. Over 400 evacuees from most of the relocation centers are employed at Seabrook, and the Japanese-American population there is over 500. Mr. Kamikawa and his family arrived at Seabrook in July 1944 from the Rohwer Relocation Center. He had his own grocery store in Fresno, Calif., prior to evacuation in May 1942 to the Fresno Assembly Center. From there the Kamikawas went in October 1942 to the Jerome Relocation Center where Mr. Kamikawa was employed in the warehouse. The family went to the Rohwer Relocation Center on the closing of Jerome. Mrs. Kamikawa's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Kojiro Kawamoto, and her brother, Kiyoshi, are at the Central Utah Relocation Center. Photographer: Iwasaki, Hikaru Seabrook Farms, New Jersey.
