Description
Full title:Walking along Riverside Drive in New York City are members of three generations of the Saiki family, voluntary evacuees from Hawaii. Between Mrs. Kazuo Saiki and her 78-year-old father-in-law, Masukichi Saiki, Issei, are her sons Theodore, 2, and Sanford, 4 1/2. Mrs. Saiki's husband, a merchant seaman now at sea, was evacuated from a ship in San Francisco harbor in the spring of 1942 to the Santa Anita Assembly Center. From there he went to the Central Relocation Center. Mrs. Saiki, the two children, and their grandfather relocated from Hilo, Hawaii, to the Jerome Relocation Center in January 1943 so that they might be united with the younger Mr. Saiki, who joined them at Jerome the next month. Mr. Saiki left Jerome in order to ship out in September 1943, and the following May the rest of the Saiki family relocated to New York. The Issei grandfather who was formerly a sugar plantation worker, is now employed as a kitchen helper in a New York City hotel. Sanford will enter kindergarten in the fall. When the children are older, Mrs. Saiki plans to attend hairdressing school. While at Jerome, she was a nurse's aid and her father-in-law worked in the mess hall. Photographer: Iwasaki, Hikaru New York, New York.
