Top: On the left is my Grandmother Yoneko. April, 1941

Bottom: Manzanar Relocation Camp. My family was interred here a year after the top photo was taken, and my mother was born in the camp shortly after. The bottom photo isn’t dated, but the paper is identical, so it’s likely to have been taken in the early 40s and not after the war ended and the camp was closed.

You can see the water tower and barracks from a different angle in this photo by Ansel Adams taken in 1943.
