Description
Full title:Haru Tanaka, an Issei resident of St. Louis, Missouri, for 30 years, owns a small restaurant in the Negro district. He employs 8 Negro helpers and one Issei resettler cook and a part-time Nisei helper. Mr. and Mrs. Tanaka have three children, all of them sons in military service. One son, Sgt. Chester Tanaka, is overseas and has been wounded twice. The other two sons expect to be sent overseas shortly. The Tanakas are very much interested in having evacuees resettle in St. Louis as they feel that St. Louis affords an opportunity for at least another restaurant business as well as other types of business opportunities. Photographer: Iwasaki, Hikaru St. Louis, Missouri.
