Decorating the Barracks

The Ninomiya family in their barracks room at the Amache Center. The mother's handiwork is preparing drapes, fashionable furniture out of scrap material, plus the boy's ingenuity in preparing double bunk beds have made this bare brick floored barracks room a fairly comfortable duration home. Tosh Ninomiya, left, is charged with the responsibility of documenting the history of the Apache Center.
