Gift of Madeleine Sugimoto and Naomi Tagawa, Japanese American National Museum
Stretched and unframed.
In the foreground, a man in blue overalls with a shovel over his right shoulder walks on a dirt path bordered by greenery, which bisects a boarded walkway running up the center into community area between grey barracks and mess hall. A woman with a red top and white skirt strolls on the walkway which ends near the mess hall at back where a man leaning on a cane and a woman holding a basket stand talking. On the left, a woman bends over tending a garden in front of a barracks; a man in grey pushes a wheelbarrow; and a child in white shirt and blue shorts shovels the earth in rows. To the right of the walkway, a small fenced garden stands next to a laundry line where a woman has just hung laundry. A seated man talks to a boy standing next to the bench in front of the barracks on the right. An American flag flies over the barracks in the distance under a blue sky.
