Description
Full title:From Heart Mountain relocation of a family looked like an impossible job to Tom Yamasaki. A wife and seven youngsters, largely girls, to say nothing of father, mother and sister, Tome, to be housed and only girls for help as bread winners. Undaunted, Tom braved all obstacles including housing and came to San Jose on short-term. After a week of hard riding of the highways and byways, WRA found a new little bungalow near Cupertino with a large garage into which the family might overflow. Now the entire Yamasaki family is comfortably relocated. Tom has steady employment on the place and three daughters and his sister are all employed around Palo Alto homes. Shown here are: front row, Joyce and Kenji, and back row, Thomas, daughter, Irene, Mrs. Yamasaki and Thomas, Jr. Just tell the folks back in Camp that everything is okay with the Yamasakis, said Tom. Located with Tom are Mrs. Kiyoko Yamasaki and the following children--Margarite, 20; Irene, 19; Alice, 17; Thomas Shoichi, 15; Edith, 12; Kenji, 8; Joyce, 4; Tome, Tom's sister. Tomitaro, his 76-year-old father and Tochi, his mother, who recently celebrated her 72nd birthday, are also with the family here. Photographer: Iwasaki, Hikaru Mountain View, California.
