Description
Full title:Mr. and Mrs. Tomatsu Gorai and Mr. Ushimatsu Kubota looking over the job bulletin board in the Philadelphia WRA office. All the job offers which come in are typed up and posted so that relocatees may come in and see immediately what kind of work is available. As you can see, the bulletin board is filled with offers. The Gorais came to Philadelphia from Heart Mountain, to join their daughter, Margaret Shigetomi. Margaret's husband is in the Army and she is working for the American Friends Service Committee. The Gorais' son, Arthur, is also in the Army. Mr. Kubota is now a supervisor of 500 employees at Seabrook Farms, New Jersey. Photographer: Van Tassel, Gretchen Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
