Description
Full title:As a silk screen operator in the New York City plant of Meissner Colorcrafts, Kenji Sumi, 39-year-old Issei from the Heart Mountain Relocation Center, is practicing an entirely new trade. Before evacuation from San Francisco in May 1942 to the Pomona Assembly Center, he and Mrs. Sumi, who is now also employed in the same plant, were engaged in domestic work in San Francisco. While at Heart Mountain, Mr. Sumi worked in the housing field office, and Mrs. Sumi was a waitress in the mess hall. They now share a furnished apartment with Mrs. Sumi's sister, Miss June Okubo, a secretary. The parents of the Okubo sisters, Mr. and Mrs. Tadaaki Okubo, and their brother Tadashige and his wife and child are still at Heart Mountain. The Okubo sisters are graduates of Polytechnic High School, San Francisco; Mr. Sumi was graduated from Lowell High School there. Miss Okubo came to New York in March 1944 and was joined there two months later by Mr. and Mrs. Sumi. Photographer: Iwasaki, Hikaru New York, New York.
