Description
Full title:Norima Kitaoka and Yoshito Sera pose for the photographer beside one of the giant ranges in the kitchen at the Stevens Hotel in Chicago. Both Mr. Kitaoka and Mr. Sera were formerly residents of Jerome Relocation Center and make up a part of the approximately 150 Americans of Japanese ancestry employed by the hotel. Employment rolls total 2,000 people in this 3,000-room Chicago hotel, which is said to be the largest hotel in the world. Mrs. Sera is also employed at the Stevens, and the Sera family rents an apartment from the Kitaoka family, which has leased a 10-room apartment building close to the Loop and is renting furnished apartments to both Caucasian and Japanese American tenants. Chicago, Illinois.
