Description
Full title:In the food store of the Wilmington, Delaware Cooperative Society, Inc., Tom Toyoji Yamane, Issei from the Gila River Relocation Center, is putting to use the experience he gained in conducting his own produce business at Huntington, California, for four years prior to evacuation. On recommendation of the co-op manager its board of directors unanimously approved Mr. Yamane's appointment as manager of the produce department. He started on his new job on July 7, 1944, the day the store opened for business. Mr. Yamane knows the produce business well, the store manager recently said, and his previous experience in dealing with customers is helping him here. Members of the co-op helped Mr. Yamane find a house on the outskirts of Wilmington where Mr. and Mrs. Yamane and their four children--Atsushi, Michiko, Mariko, and Masao--now live. 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 resettlement plans with the aid of the WRA relocation offices in New York and Philadelphia. Mr. Yamane's 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.
