Japantown – New Research

Last month my wife Lisa and I were in San Francisco for a few days. We took a walking tour of Japantown (thank you SF City Guides!) and during that tour we walked past 2031 Bush St. In 1942, photographer Dorothea Lange memorialized that location in this photo:

Here we see the processing of Japanese Americans on their way to internment camps. I am struck by how well dressed everyone is and the number of small children.
